Original Limited Edition Relief Print first trial proof September 2017
Image size 6" high by 8" wide (150 mm by 200 mm)
This print was cut from a photograph of a Mute Swan, one of the swans that used to
cruise around in Lost Lagoon, Stanley Park, Vancouver. The Vancouver Parks Board
imported them from England, and clipped their wings so that they couldn't fly away.
I always thought those swans looked mad, then I found out why. The crudely bobbed
wingtip feathers must have been very frustrating for the swans. I believe the VPB
no longer follows this practice.
