In 1994 Pollyanna made what is probably her most remarkable and most famous expedition. She traveled into one of the most remote areas of the Tibetan borderlands in her quest to paint one of the most endangered of all animals - the giant panda.
Pollyanna was lead out onto the mountain slopes by one of the workers at the panda hospital where she was working - and after three hours trekking through dense undergrowth they were rewarded with a sighting of a wild Giant Panda. Since the panda was discovered by western science at the end of the 1800's, it is believed that less than 50 foreigners have had the privilege of seeing one of these magnificent creatures in the wild - fewer people than have climbed mount Everest.
Wild Pandas can be extremely dangerous, but despite being unarmed - to kill or injure a panda is punishable by death in china - Pollyanna advanced to within 15 yards. Where she completed a series of sketches, forming the basis of this and other paintings.
