American White Pelican Framed Print


Pelicanus americanus

The iconic pelican in all it's glory. One of the largest North American birds, the American White Pelican is a majestic sight in the air. Their large heads and huge, heavy bills give them an almost prehistoric look. The original image dates back to the 18th century, from the book "The Birds of America" by ornithologist and painter John James Audubon. It features life-sized watercolours of a total of 435 North American birds and is one of the most celebrated books of natural history. This image has since been digitally restored to its former glory. 

This print is created using a combination of lithographic and photochrom printing processes which allow for the restoration of vintage archives, whilst adding colour, depicting the intricate beauty and details of this iconic bird. 

Printed with Japanese archival ink on a matte Hahnemühle paper in Denmark. 

Available in three sizes:

50 x 70 cm
70 x 100 cm
112 x 158 cm (please note that large size prints come in Perspex instead of glass due to the size)
