What a perfect way to start the new year with the completion of the life size bird mural, So Simple, a Beginning.
It was about a year ago that I first wrote about Jane Kim of InkDwell‘s endeavor to depict the evolution of the world’s birds in a giant 70 x 40 foot mural for Cornell University’s Department of Ornithology. It’s taken a year and that’s pretty miraculous considering the intricate detail and accuracy involved to paint 270 birds and even a few dinosaurs.
Here are InkDwell‘s photos below showing the stunning result. Casart wallcoverings were used in the early stage as temporary wallpaper templates for the continents and geographical locations on top of which the birds were painted.
Congratulations to Jane and her crew for all their hard work to create the largest and first-of-its-kind educational mural about the evolution of birds!!
Casart coverings is glad to have played even a small part in this major endeavor.
Next time you’re in New York, be sure to visit the Cornell University’s Lab of Ornithology to see the mural in person and perhaps even do a little bird watching while there.
