The artist purchased the actual J.J. Audubon originals from Sotheby's and physically transferred their full-size image to metal printing plates. This direct camera process helps to retain all the detail and color of the originals. His work is the world’s only direct camera Audubon lithographs.

These are not signed and numbered by the artist; these are extra prints made beyond the 1500 limited edition sets. These extra prints were acquired as part of an estate/house sale.
Signed and numbered prints retail between $250-2000.

Black or Surf Duck - #64 Plate CCCXVII
American White Pelican - #63 Plate CCCXI

Double elephant (life size - 26 1/4 x 39 1/4). As indicated, the term 'double elephant' refers to the unusual (double) size of the paper used by Audubon and his engravers (Havell followed Lizars).
