An illustration from the book The Birds of America by John James Audubon. Originally published in the first half of the 19th century in a print run of 200 copies, a first-edition copy recently sold at Southeby’s for 11.5 million dollars. It’s unlikely that the street artist who also drew and painted riverboats and road signs would have suspected that in 150 years he would be known as “a great 19th century American naturalist”, and that his pictures would be an ornithological landmark. 

A moving, 3-D image – a lenticular print – is created using micro-lenses and printing software. It gives a dimension of depth to the space or creates the illusion of movement and shows different images when viewed from different angles.

- A lenticular lens sheet over the image. 
- Protective lamination between the image and stretcher.
- An Italian wood frame made of African abachi on the stretcher
- Loops and wire to hang on a wall
