The Wollemi Pine – handmade cyanotype botanical wall art ready to frame
If you have never heard of the Wollemi Pine before then you are in for a treat. I urge you to look it up as it has a fabulous story.?In short, the Wollemi Pine was believed extinct for millions and millions of years. The only evidence of its existence was from fossils that pre-date even the dinosaurs!
One fateful day in 1992, a park ranger, David Noble, accidentally stumbled upon this unusual tree that he didn’t recognise while exploring the Blue Mountains of NSW, Australia.
Incredibly it was confirmed to be Wollemia nobilis. Since then, the location has been kept top secret and a very successful propagation program initiated. You can now have your own Wollemi Pine in your home and garden.
The Wollemi Pine, with its prehistoric foliage and backstory worthy of Attenborough narration, is sure to start fabulous conversations in your home.
This is an original handmade cyanotype photogram/sun print, not a digital reproduction, nor is it reprinted using a digital negative which means that it is currently available in one size only (life size because of the contact printing nature of the process). The emulsion has been painted on the cotton or paper page by me and the specimen was collected and pressed either from my garden, my conservation property or during my field expeditions as an ecological scientist (under permit). The specimen is reused again and again so as to cause as little to no harm as possible to the wild plants. Each print is handmade, one-of-a-kind, and mounted to order. As such, the position of the specimen may move slightly each time.
Materials: This original artwork is made using finely woven cotton fabric
Size: The artwork is cut by hand to 8 x 10 inch / 20 x 25cm and then mounted onto gallery-quality, acid-free mounting board ready to frame in an 11 x 14-inch frame
