    Description

    ENRIC TORRES-PRAT (Spanish, b. 1938)
    Tarzan vs. Ska
    Oil on canvas
    40.25 x 29.75 in.
    Signed lower right

    While known most widely for his definitive depictions of Vampirella, Enric has also focused with great success on the most famous of Edgar Rice Burroughs' creations: Tarzan. Each scene portrayed by the artist was carefully selected from many of Tarzan's most popular tales, and this image, from the novel Tarzan the Untamed, illustrates Tarzan's fight to the death with Ska the vulture. The dread and isolation of a weak and nearly defeated Tarzan in the heat of the desert sun is perfectly captured.
