Lawrence Lebduska loved nature, and Jungle Scene is representative of his larger body of work. Here, the artist removed the animals from their natural habitats and placed them in an imagined landscape filled with lush trees and brightly colored flowers. A flock of pink birds perches on a large tree branch in the foreground as a jaguar stalks them from a higher vantage point.
