Indian Expedition

BAS had the distinct privilege to conduct a research expedition to India in search of the ever scarce Bengal Tiger. The timing of the research trip coincided with the release of a major Hollywood movie entitled "Two Brothers" and BAS was to create a painting related to that film. Two months prior to being in India he visited the movie film location in Angkor Wat Temple, Cambodia, which inspired the painting "Two Brothers - Ancient Rites". The second painting of The Art of BAS Tiger Project, was to depict Bengal Tigers inhabiting Panna Tiger Reserve, India. "The Promise of India" was the final result of the expedition, the artwork exists to highlight the desperate plight of the Bengal Tiger and assist to preserve it's existence in whatever way possible.

The world's foremost Bengal Tiger researcher, Dr. Raghu Chundawat, joined BAS' expedition and proved to be an invaluable source of information as to the current status of India's tiger. Assisted by his partner, Joanna Van Gruisen, Raghu had spent eight years with the tigers of Panna and had undertaken groundbreaking research studies together with close monitoring of the general welfare of the Reserves' tiger population.

The tireless dedication of Raghu and Joanna greatly impressed BAS as he followed in their footsteps and gleamed knowledge from their unique understanding of the tiger and sincere passion for it's survival. It was his part to bring an artists eye to the spectacular scenery that Panna Tiger Reserve offered in abundance. With an added sense of the deep relationship that the researchers had established with the tigers and their habitat, BAS was able to capture the essence of these marvelous animals existence. India has a history of precious jewels but none are more precious than this native treasure, they are "The Promise of India" to the world, and it's surely the honoured responsibility of this great nation to preserve the future of the magnificent Bengal Tiger.

BAS together with Mike Birkhead take the high way on elephant back in search of the elusive Bengal Tiger. It's amazing how able the elephant is at traversing varied ground, from rocky outcrops to muddy slopes, dense forest to wading across rivers - what a wonderful creature and a gentle ride!

Wildlife Adventures

Bandhavgarh National Park offers an interesting range of scenery, primarily dry woodland that is interspersed by flat grass plains and a number of waterholes fed by a network of streams.

The Bengal Tiger is amongst the most beautiful yet endangered of the worlds big cats. To see such an animal in the wild is truly an awe inspiring privilege and surely a treasure to be guarded for future generations. Many of India's National Parks and Tiger Reserves have now relinquished their tigers to poachers and loss of natural habitat, this represents a sad betrayal of the National treasure and it is an urgent need for the nation to act decisively to preserve the Bengal Tigers existence in the wild.
