Sarah Larnach Has A Giant Heart.
My friend and fellow Element advocate, Sarah Larnach, lives over in New Zealand, where there was some pretty gnarly earthquakes not so long ago. Here is an email that she sent out about this painting that she has donated which is currently being auctioned…
Watercolour and gold ink on 600gsm paper. 39cm wide x 56cm tall
‘The giant moa has been extinct for about 250 years, but these massive birds were once the worlds largest. I’ve painted this moa in the style of a museum taxidermy guide, for my Wonder Cabinet (Wunderkammer) series. The special detail in this painting is the wishbone (which would be about 50cm tall on a Moa) , here symbolically painted in gold for hope and good wishes. This is the first original piece in this series to go up for sale.
