ARCHIVAL PIGMENT PRINT ON HAHNEMUHLE PHOTO RAG 308GSM

50 X 50 CM

EDITION / 50 

Beautifully reproduced from Jane's intricate black Biro drawing Mummy Bear and Baby Bear. This is the first design of her brown bears diptych. One of eight designs from her iconic print and china collection In Homage to the Last Great Carnivores of Eurasia, this body of work highlights threatened and endangered carnivores across the Eurasian continent.

A Russian brown bear treads across this beautiful china plate with a rich tapestry of symbolism woven through his fur, including an interpretation of artist Anselm Kiefer’s attic. An old soviet war poster was used as inspiration to illustrate the harsh Russian winters faced by female bears and their cubs, a time when hibernating Brown bears are most at risk from mankind.

Jane's meticulous drawings take several months to research and make. Sumptuous signed and numbered limited edition archival pigment print, made by one of the very best printmakers in the industry.
