Eccentric Fingers creates exquisite pieces of art, working with stained glass, either with lead or copper foil, plus a range of pencil, pen and ink illustrations.
This stunning panel of a black mamba rhinoceros in the wild was created for a very special reason. Eccentric Fingers' artist, Cathy Graves, loving designed and crafted the piece as a donation to an auction in aid of the Black Mambas Anti-Poaching Unit - an all female unit made up of local women. They have been asked to give the rhino a name.
The auction is to take place on Sunday 13 September 2015 from 5 to 11pm at Russets in Chiddingfold, Surrey. More details can be found on the Transfrontier Africa Facebook page. You can also register your interest and bid by emailing Kim Budge at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The reserve price will be £300 (UPDATE bidding has already reached £400), so here's hoping people love it and support this magnificent and vital cause.
