Object Description

Harriet Bane’s Blue Cockerel is perhaps an oddity to the native eye, but we need only look at the genetics of certain strands of species, and stories from natural history in order to feel the beauty in this piece. For example, there are in fact white hens that lay blue eggs: Following the sinking of a Chilean ship off the Hebrides Islands near Scotland, the modern Azur layer was rescued and selected by George Malcolm in Scotland in the 1930s (Hendrix Genetics, 2022). Bane’s lovably specific cockerel, with marked care to detail, moves beyond the delineation of form from Picasso’s woodcut iteration, to work with fine plumage, as well as characterful and choice illumination.
