"John Coe" Orca Limited Edition Art Print
"John Coe - The Lost Orca of the Hebrides" is a limited edition art print showing the iconic orca 'John Coe'. He and a younger bull 'Aquarius' are the last two of the functionally extinct ecotype of orca known as the west coast community in Scotland. With just two males remaining there is no hope for this unique pod which roam the Western Isles. Hidden within the body is a map of the Hebrides alongside other iconic species found in the diverse and special environment of the Sea of the Hebrides. I wanted to reflect not only the ecological significance but also the emotional connection between these animals and the local islands and to share their heart-breaking story.
