Adaptive Radiation

$ 275.00

Paintings of finches illustrating adaptive radiation.  Twelve species are painted in miniature around a single larger finch, painted in a variety of neutral tones.  They are set in vintage wood cutout frame for an antique aesthetic.  This natural history piece was inspired by Darwin's study of evolution via Galapagos finches.  Finches on the Galapagos Islands are thought to have originated from a common finch-like ancestor, and evolved into various species occupying different ecological niches.  The diversity of beak shape indicates their specialized skills in foraging for food.  The back of the piece is finished in black velvet, with a sawtooth hanger - ready for display.
