This artwork celebrates the anatomy of a scaly, enduring little mammal with an unfortunate tagline: the world’s most illegally trafficked animal.
A handcrafted, interactive piece of artwork celebrating the beauty and vulnerability of the world’s only scaled mammal which is getting poached to extinction.
This unique artwork carries a powerful underlying message; under UV light a phosphorescent skeleton appears, indicating all that remains when a species falls into the darkness of extinction.
Released in a limited edition of just 40 prints, each purchase protects pangolins with a donation to the work of Save Vietnam’s Wildlife, a non-profit committed to protecting and increasing populations of threatened wildlife in Vietnam.
The Sunda Pangolin screen print was created as part of the Wallace Series in collaboration with Another Escape, where co-founders Jody Daunton and Rachel Taylor travelled to Borneo to follow in the footsteps of the great British explorer and naturalist Alfred Russell Wallace. Tragically, as Wallace predicted, many of the region’s animals are facing extinction.
Each Bornean Orangutan screenprint is accompanied by a beautifully printed book that tells a story of this species and the life work of Alfred Wallace.
This 60-page publication explores the species he witnessed on his travels and highlights the growing threats they currently face in Borneo. Through beautifully written articles, fascinating facts and colourful graphics, these books are perfect for anyone fascinated with animals or curious in natural history.
This screen print has been designed and hand-printed by brothers Ed and James Harrison in a limited edition of just 40 prints.
They use Fedrigoni’s 350gsm Freelife Cento, a carbon balanced paper which Fedrigoni create in collaboration with The World Land Trust. Numbered and embossed, this interactive thirteen-layer screen print is comprised of twelve layers of water based pigment ink, finished with one layer of phosphorescent ink.
“Through our art, we are giving a voice to the animals that are far too often overlooked and unheard. We hope these prints create a platform that inspires curiosity and moves more people to take action.”
James Harrison, Printmaker & co-founder of Under the Skin
