"The beguiling orangutans in Borneo make a fresh nest for themselves each night so they can sleep safely under the stars in the rainforest canopy. Living with the orangutans in the forests of Borneo was a remarkable and emotional experience and in many ways, this painting captures the essence of their very human-like, gentle and fragile existence."
John Dyer: In the 1950s simple neutral frames became popular for St Ives artists. John chooses an off-white so the lightest tones appear in the painting. The moulding is a variation of 'Salvator Rosa' from Italy. Hand finished in almond white paint.
