OUR FOREFATHERS, OUR LOSS FINE ENGLISH CHINA MUG

OUR FOREFATHERS, OUR LOSS FINE ENGLISH CHINA MUG

One of a set of six finest English china mugs featuring Jane's original Biro drawings.

This mug design reproduces both drawings from her ‘Amur Leopard’ diptych. ‘Our Forefathers’ and 'Our Loss' contemplate the origins and repercussions of man’s fascination with collecting natural exotica from early European exploration to the present day. This is symbolised by a representation of Rembrandt’s ‘The Windmill’ 1641, as the windmill becomes an exotic folly for three Amur leopards, one of the world’s most endangered species. This stunning mug focuses on an enlarged image of the leaping leopard, it's paw outstretched towards the handle as if clawing at the mug user, its tail flicked inside the mug. A more complete image of the original drawing features on the back emphasising 'The Windmill'. The interior features the two leopards from 'Our Loss', their eyes peering out the mug at the world around them.
