This majestic moose, from an original drawing by the artist, is superimposed on a vintage 1947 map of Canada and is tinted in shades of sepia like an old photograph. Weighing as much as 850 lbs (385 kg), the moose is one of Canada's largest natural species. It is found in almost all parts of the country and therefore appropriate to be pictured on this pillow with the map of Canada - a wonderful addition to a rustic or masculine interior, and perfect for the cottage or cabin.
The front of the pillow is cotton/canvas. The back of the pillow is a classic black linen/cotton fabric. There is a black zipper along the bottom of the pillow which allows for easy removal of the insert.
Pillow insert made of non-allergenic material. Size: 12" x 18" (30 cm x 46 cm). Wash pillowcase in cold water. Hang to dry. Iron while still damp.
The Artist/Designer: Barbara has been drawing animals all her life. For a number of years she was illustrating children's books, and then started stylizing her work to look like the steel engravings or woodblock prints that can be found in vintage school books and screen printing her drawings onto textiles by hand. All of the sewing is done with a 1947 Singer Featherweight sewing machine which is in keeping with the "vintage-look" of her work.
