Golden Sun Moth Hand-coloured Etching

Products Name:Golden Sun Moth Hand-Coloured Etching
Categoris name:Home & Living/Home Décor/Wall Décor/Wall Hangings/Prints


Unframed, original hand-coloured etching of the Endangered “Golden Sun Moth”. This etching was made using a variety of techniques on a copper plate: line etching, aquatint and tusche. Watercolour paint was used to colour the distinctive bright orange wings of this female Sun Moth. Only quality archival materials were used. The image size (including signature) is 6” wide by 5” high.

This is a limited edition of 30 prints. Each print is hand-printed and coloured, titled, signed and numbered by myself. It is posted unframed, wedged between stiff cardboard and wrapped in a waterproof archival plastic bag to protect it from damage during transport.

STORY OF THE MOTH

The Moth is native to my home town of Canberra, Australia. It is not only in danger of extinction due to loss of its native grassland habitat, but also its biology. The sun moth larvae live underground for years eating nothing but the roots a small number of species of grass (predominantly Wallaby Grass, which is in shorter and shorter supply). When it emerges as a Moth, it has no mouth and has to survive on what it has stored as a larva: 3 to 5 days worth. In that time it needs to mate and lay up to 300 eggs to ensure the continuation of the species. To further complicate this mission, the Moth is only active on hot, dry and windless days from around 10am to 2pm from the end of November to the beginning of December.

It’s remarkable that the Moth has survived this long, and certainly deserves to be protected so it can continue. Unfortunately in my home town it’s habitat is declining due to development and overgrazing. 10% of the profits from sales of this and other prints will be donated to the Australian Conservation Foundation to aid in their work to help protect the Australian environment, wildlife and ecology.

The little things DO count.
