Sacred Creatures - Racoon VIII
"Sacred Creatures - Raccoon VIII” is an original, limited edition linocut of a raccoon. This version of my raccoon is printed once, in a beautiful mid-blue colour.
I love the look of raccoons, and their cheeky faces make them a perfect subject for a linocut. My "Sacred Creatures" series so far includes this raccoon, a springbok, a cow, a lemur and an emperor tamarin monkey (they haven’t all made it to this website, but you can see them on my Instagram page, which can be accessed via the link at the foot of this page). Each sacred creature is decorated with symbols, flowers and/or gilding.
This little print would be great for a kid's bedroom or the small space on the wall you need to fill. It fits nicely into a 25cm square Ikea frame.
The block for this print is still intact, so if you would prefer him printed in a different colour, just let me know.
Technique. This is a single print linocut, which has been printed after the raccoon image was carved into a lino block. Some of the other raccoons in this series have also been gilded, to make the features on his face stand out.
