The Larus Canus Canus, named by Linneaus in 1758, or the common seagull breeds in northern Europe, northern Asia and north-west North America. The greater part of the population migrates to the south during the winter time.
This Larus Canus Canus is a curious, sailing creature made in cloth maché for a very dear friend of mine. So this one will stay in the north and maybe even enjoy some northern lights, in a town by a river where my friend lives.
Larus Canus Canus is a cloth maché creature. The base is paper maché with an outer layer of textile strips. It measures 49 cm between the wing tips, is 29 cm long from beak to tail and 12 cm high.
It is made of newspaper, glue made of white flour and water, wire scraps and used curtain hooks, cotton strips from used clothing, air hardening clay (eyes), oven bake clay (beak), white glue and acrylic paint.
Larus Canus Canus belongs to a private collection.
