Morning Mr Magpie

by John Tibbott
DESCRIPTION

Fine art print on bright white, fine poly-cotton blend, matte canvas using latest generation Epson archival inks. Individually trimmed and hand stretched museum wrap over 1-1/2" deep wood stretcher bars. Includes wall hanging hardware.

ABOUT THE ART

The second in my "inspired by Radiohead" series. Magpies are considered unlucky in some cultures, British especially. Superstitious people say you should salute a single magpie, other say "Good Morning Mr Magpie". Magpies are also said to be home breakers and thieves. Often breaking open eggs in other nests, and stealing shiny things.

A bird that has to be addressed Mr, must be seen as a gentleman of sorts. So I wanted to give this an old-fashioned needlecraft feel, the Magpie is depicted as some sort of well-to-do villain.
