Final Moments

by UMANO Graphics
Life, in all its forms is precious.

Thus, I drew a pencil portrait of a cow's final moments, just before it's slaughtered at an abattoir in Nigeria.

The despondency is quite obvious.

Is he afraid of death?
Do they have any last words?
Would he have acted any differently, if it knew this was his final moments?

Well, I thought about these as I drew each stroke and walked round it's emotionally stricken body, with his feet all tied and waiting to breathe his last...and this is a sad reality.

Oh it's the sad reality. I visited the abattoir to witness this final moment.

Besides the happy animal faces we see daily are these gruesome heartbreaking moments that are rarely discussed.

This I must say is an important part of the animal planet, hence I submitted it for this contest.

This is very disturbing work.
