Artist's comments ...

The print is done on Okawara with oil based inks.

Cicadas are facinating and mysterious insects. They live as larva for 13-17 years under the ground, and then emerge to climb a tree, mate, buzz and fly around for a week or so before dying. A brood of thousands emerging simultaneosly after a 17 year wait, and the way the trees sing with thousands of these harmless creatures on a summer day ... to imagine the loss of such magic and drama is indeed sad. Due to urbanization however, cicadas are endangered and some broods are thought to be extinct.
