Description

In spring, bogong moths (Agrotis infusa) migrate from their breeding grounds in southern Queensland and western New South Wales towards the Australian Alps. Here, they ‘aestivate’ between the craggy granite peaks. The moths were an important protein-rich food source for the Aboriginal people of the region, who gathered in the high country in large numbers during the summer months.

This linocut image is printed over a two-sided monotype background created using real botanical specimens of Australian leaves and grasses. No two cards are ever the same. Often, the background is composed of two or more overlain prints, each layer representing one pass through the printing press. Backgrounds can vary significantly, so please make use of the drop-down tone and intensity options so I can send you a card with a background you’ll love.

Remember, the images shown here are representative only: your card will feature this linocut artwork and its very own unique background.
