A limited edition woodblock print of a pilot whale on a solid background entitled "Elm Cetacean". Artist Julian Meredith created this print using a giant plank of elm, handmade rice paper and a wax resist technique with handmade ink to make the image. Meredith is a member of the Royal Academy and his work is held in the permanent collections of two British museums. He is noted for his beautiful depictions of whales and fish. His work includes huge artworks of whales and fish, including 600 foot sand drawings on beaches, chalk scrapings on limestone hills and rock arrangements in fields designed to be viewed from the air. Meredith's daughter wrote the following words: My father lives in a world where wood becomes water which flows into fish which fall eaten to the bone crushed by stone into lime that lives as a whale formed in a field in a sea full of grass where water once ran.
