Migratory Route

Migratory Route

Describes the annual migration of giraffes and wild animals across the Serengeti plains of Africa. The more obscure symbols and shadow shapes represent some of the hazards involved in this trek. The bottom figure is the casual observer – “us”. This figure observes and asks what impulse sets this migration in motion and stands in awe of this unique spectacle. This printmaking paper was moistened and crushed to create the lines and ridges of its surface. Textured rice paper was then applied and melded to the printmaking paper. I chose this particular rice paper as it gave the illusion of a multitude of little footprints in the sand. SIZE 30” x 38”
