Angel is an albino dolphin calf taken from her mother at "The Cove" in Taiji Japan. Angel represents thousands of dolphins who are hunted in Japan and either sold into slavery or slaughtered. Angel's family was no exception. She now swims alone, without her mother or family, in a small, cement pool at the Taiji Whaling Museum. My hope is that this painting will help raise awareness about the issue of dolphin slaughter and cetaceans in captivity. Please read more at "Ric O'Barry's Dolphin Project" and please watch the Oscar winning film "The Cove". All proceeds from the sale of this original painting and prints will go to Ric O'Barry's Dolphin Project. You may donate directly at: www.dolphinproject.net.
