Darwin Finches

$ 200.00

Paintings of four finches illustrating adaptive radiation.  They are painted on metallic green-gold backgrounds and set in vintage brass frames for an antique aesthetic.  This natural history set 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.
