Original oil painting by Sarah Soward.
Oil on canvas.
30x24 inches.

This painting was a Finalist in the DSWF: Wildlife Artist of the Year 2023 exhibition!

Locked features two kori bustard birds locked beak to beak in a territory dispute. They are having some very different reactions to their current situation.

I photographed this scene in Kenya after watching the two birds run from opposite sides of the vast savannah to lock beaks and whirl each other around like toddlers at a playground.

It was epic and informative. It definitely left a lasting impression.
