Always remebered...  -Taima by namu-the-orca Always remebered...  -Taima by namu-the-orca
Taima (and her still born calf) passed away on the Sunday, 6th of June 2010

This is my tribute to this wonderfull orca. It took me (too) long to post this since it's already been more than a week now. Though, I hope you can enjoy and that Taima will indeed never be forgotten...

Taima and her (randomly drawn) calf are in the foreground. In the background are, from left to right, Katina, Taima's doughter Malia, Tilikum and Trua.

Hee..Woow..WHAT? Taima passed away? And in 2010? Have I been living under a rock for the past couple of years? I didn't even know that. :( Taima was Gudrun's daughter, right? I followed Gudrun the moment she was brought into Hardewijk. I love how you drew Tilikum in the picture too, as she was his most beloved mate. Wow. Still can't believe it. :'( Well, anyway, your art is amazing! Your thoughts behind them are amazing and I'll be coming by every once in a while. :)

Yeah, she did. It really was very sad, especially cause Kalina and Sumar also passed away that year :( She indeed was Gudrun's daughter; one of the few orcas we ever had over here in the Netherlands. Thanks for your kind words :)
