Geese of the world 1991-1995

Edition: unique, bound in leather, wood and feathers (app. 220x270x35mm)

For each of the species of Geese and very close related members of waterfowl I designed a feather (53 all together). The feathers are icons to the species. The length of the feather is related to the average size of the bird, shape of the tip is related to the shape of the head, coloring and form of the broader flag is derived from the form and coloring of the lower part of the body, etc. The paintings are made in a Medieval-like miniature technique: egg tempera on parchment. In calligraphy the scientific names are written under the feathers.
