Starling murmurations (gatherings of thousands of starlings in the sky) were once read and interpreted as portents of the future. “Taking the auspices” as it was called was a crucial part of forward planning, especially for matters such as battles, treaties and affairs of state. They were also consulted for less momentous concerns such as the most fortuitous name for a newborn child. The Starling will nest in reed beds, woodland and on the coast and in urban areas will roost in holes and crevices in buildings, trees and piers.
About the Prints
Súileir original prints are printed on premium stock acid-free Canson Lustre paper and mounted with Larson Juhl acid-free archival mount board. They are mounted with a bevelled mount and carefully framed with handcrafted solid wood bevelled frames. All our wooden frames use wood sourced from sustainable forests. Many of our prints are digitally signed and embossed with our signature seal.
To keep your print as safe as possible, we use high-quality clear perspex glazing on our shipped framed prints. On our click-and-collect prints, we use 2mm clear float glass. All our unframed prints are sent flat, with bevelled mount, backing board and print sleeve. All framed and unframed prints are wrapped in tissue paper with a branded card and carefully placed in cardboard boxes with our branded stamp and labels, making our prints an ideal gift.
