About artist/note:

“A fascinating dance of sea-spirit birds in which a highly intricate composition of five seperate [sic] images conjoin and radiate from a single focal point. A variety of textures, in particular a great deal of cutaway, finely delineated outlines, regularly engraved grooves and small circles - all imparting an impression of airy lightness, which is further enhanced by delicate gradations and nuances of colours.”
