Bringing together my love of Bambi, 60s Americana and – weirdly- botany, I present to you this wonderful ‘painting’- by a B. James [as signed in the b.r.h. corner.] It’s a lithograph measuring 48” x 24” [1.21m x 0.6m] in a timber frame, mounted to stand proud of the hessian backing. The total size of this beauty: 54” x 30” [1.37m x 0.76m] – how good would it look hung over your Parker sideboard? This is a picture that all the hipsters are sure to love.
Two Bambis stand dwarfed by the Giant Sequoia trees as the morning sun glistens on the idyllic scene. To say the image references the Garden of Eden is to state the obvious- so one Bambi is clearly Eve, the other Adam. Or this is the sixth day of Creation, before those pesky humans showed up and ruined it all.
Whatever, this picture is iconic. It just fits into the back of the car [with the windows down and the frame peeking out.] And it’s for sale: $AUD155
