'Fernbird and Wetland Ecosystem' A3 Print

  • 'Fernbird and Wetland Ecosystem' A3 Print

High quality A3 print of original acrylic on 650mm diameter round panel painting 'Fernbird and Wetland Ecosystem' 2015 by Anna Priluka. Print dimensions 420mm x 29.7mm.

The endemic fernbird/matata (Bowdleria punctata) is a small and well camouflaged bird that lives in dense, low wetland vegetation. They are distributed patchily throughout New Zealand, and many local populations have disappeared as a result of habitat loss - in the last 150 years, over 90% of New Zealand's wetlands have been filled or drained. This painting contains an abundance of native wetland species including raupo (Typha orientalis), the endemic red admiral butterfly (Vanessa gonerilla), the fern kiwakiwa (Blechnum fluviatile), glasswort (Salicornia quinqueflora) and puarangi/native hibiscus (Hibiscus richardsonii).

Open edition. All prints have excellent archival properties and are printed on 300gsm, 100% post consumer waste recycled stock* with vegetable based inks. Each is individually signed and monogrammed and comes with a thick board backing, information and enclosed in a cellophane bag for protection. Shipped flat in recycled cardboard packaging.

* please be aware that because the prints are made on 100% recycled post consumer waste stock, very tiny flecks may be present on some of the paper. I enjoy the natural look this gives and feel it is much preferable to printing on paper made from old-growth forest pulp!

Thanks :)
