Pelican in a Downpour – Hand Signed Serigraph #781
Charley’s “Pelican in a Downpour” was conceived in a time when the pesticide DDT was responsible for severe declines in large bird populations, such as the Bald Eagle and the Brown Pelican. This print was meant to draw attention to man’s impact on the environment. Happily, the dangers of DDT were recognized and the Brown Pelican is back in large numbers. This print is presented beautifully with matching coordinated mats and two-tone wood frame, as shown. Professionally framed and ready to hang on the wall. Print #781. Free shipping in the Continental US.
“If your food is all finned and your chin’s double-chinned, you’re a Brown Pelican. The seine with a brain. It takes IQ to outwit a mess of menhaden, because they’re always in school. By the way, haven’t you noticed something fishy about your food lately? Been upset by incomplete incubation? Bad news—you’re a vanishing species. DDT. Sorry about that. Nothing personal, though—we meant it for bugs but we didn’t stop to…Next time we’ll plan ahead.” Charley Harper
