John Dyer Painting. Person of the Forest, Borneo


"Orangutan baby orphans swing from the trees as they enjoy the Ubar fruits. Sitting and painting for several hours in this idyllic scene, as the orphaned orangutans are cared for and allowed to develop their natural behaviours of feeding, playing and nest building, I am struck by the similarities there are between us and orangutans. They really are the 'Person of the Forest'. Beautiful."
