The cave paintings of Lascaux in southwest France are lasting proof that mankind has been fascinated by animals since the dawn of civilization. Painting by torchlight and using bare rock as their canvas, our Cro-Magnon ancestors strove, with astonishing results, to capture the likeness of the deer, the horse and the bull. Some 17,000 years later, our tools may have changed but our fascination certainly hasn’t.
Anyone who has been lucky enough to observe wild animals in their natural habitat knows just how magical the moment one finds oneself face to face with a magnificent wild beast can be. Wildlife in our Sights is a sumptuous series of six half-ounce Gold coins, each one capturing that moment for eternity.
