An Original Work of Art
The design by Canadian wildlife artist Jean-Charles Daumas deftly combines sumptuous colors and intricate engraving to capture the delicate beauty of springtime in Canada’s many forests. Returning to its breeding range after wintering in the south, the northern flicker is positioned vertically on a tree limb to allow a full view of its distinctively patterned plumage. Intricate engraving captures its likeness in outstanding detail, from the relatively long bill to the darker markings on its tail and upper wing feathers. Towards the base of the tree, vibrant full color adds a bright splash of hues to the woodland scene. Red, green, yellow and white paint beautifully recreate the three-leaf clusters of red trillium (Trillium erectum) and white trillium (Trillium grandiflorum) which carpet the forest floor each April and May.
