Product Description

Don't mess with the Predator! John Alvin created this wonderful image Predator Portrait, based in the Predator from the original feature film. There's a reason why these aliens are the most feared hunters in the galaxy, and now they're being featured in the critically acclaimed new film Prey.

This Predator Portrait is signed by artist John Alvin and the giclee is framed, and requires a shipping charge. It makes a perfect partner to the Alien Mother portrait by John Alvin, which you can find HERE.

This piece is the only one from the Alvin Estate, and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

About the Predator alien:

The Yautja, (pronounced Ya-OOT-ja), known colloquially as the Predators or Hunters, are an extraterrestrial species characterized by their hunting of other dangerous species for sport and honor, including humans. The Yautja are a sentient, humanoid race that breathe an atmosphere similar to that of Earth's, but possess a level of technological advancement far in excess of anything available to humans. The Predators stalk and kill their prey using a combination of highly advanced technology, such as active camouflage and energy weapons, combined with comparatively primitive traditional weapons, such as bladesspears and nets. The Predators often ritualistically mutilate their prey and usually claim a trophy from their kills. Capable of interstellar travel in star ships, the Predators have hunted on Earth for centuries and have also had prior contact with the Engineers.

Aside from their repeated conflicts with humans, the Predators have notably been associated with Xenomorph XX121, known to them as kiande amedha ("hard meat"), whom they revere as perhaps the most worthy of all prey. They have been known to deliberately breed the creatures from captive Queens in order to hunt them, often as part of initiation rituals for young Predators.
