Childhood Memories III: Ride the Escaping Quagga by 

What the heck is a Quagga? You may have seen a picture of one in an encyclopedia or somewhere on the web. The last Quagga was in the London Zoo and died in 1870. They originally came from the drier parts of Southern Africa. In 2005, through selective breeding of regional Zebras from extensive studies of the DNA, a male Quagga foal was born in the same region. In 2006, they were on to their third generation. Trying to bring back what was lost. I think they are exquisite. I hope you enjoyed this fun little work as a carousel horse. :o)

Created on my iPad in ArtRage based on sketches I had made previously. I did the post work in Photoshop. Total time, about 4 hours.

I try to create images that will touch your heart or soul and make them go “twang”. Eye candy for the soul is my goal. :o)

    beautiful work Bunny! :) …i’ve never heard of a Quagga before, very interesting and sad they became extinct.

  • Actually, as my story says, they have managed to do some selective breeding from Zebras and have reproduced their first few generations. I’m glad they have been able to get these beautiful animals back into the world once again. Thank you Karin. :o)

    oh apologies Bunny, I misunderstood and didn’t realise they’d been successful in breeding them.

  • LOL! I hope I didn’t sound like a crabby old lady. Thank you so much dear Karin. :o)
