Darwin Finches

$ 250.00

Paintings of four finches illustrating adaptive radiation.  They are painted on gold leaf backgrounds and set in refinished 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.

SET OF 4 framed paintings

SIZE: each framed circular painting is 6 inches in diameter

MEDIA: acrylic and gold leaf on linen, varnished.  Set in vintage brass frames with built-in hangers - these can also be placed on plate holder easels.
