Chatham Island Shag
ORIGINAL OIL by Linda Besse - 8" X 8"

"Silent Skies" is an international collaborative super-mural mosaic featuring all 678 endangered species of birds of the world. The installation form the artistic centerpiece of the 27th International Ornithological Congress in Vancouver in 2018. The original mural will go on international tour to select cultural and scientific venues and a limited number of canvas giclee editions of each will be available for sale. Proceeds will support bird conservation and environmental education.

Each piece is 8" X 8". I chose the Chatham Island Shag, endemic to the Chatham Islands of New Zealand.
