The artwork for this design was created from the flora and fauna found on a nineteenth century Japanese lacquer screen, and vintage remnants of Chinese wallpapers. There is a meandering stem from which a selection of exotic birds primp, preen and sing. Two very gentle colourways, soft blues with greens, and neutrals with terracotta and green are printed on a linen herringbone. In addition there is a version with a charcoal ground and birds of saturated blues and greens printed on a natural linen with a light glaze.
