• Image of Pigeon Feather Pie Chart

Digital illustration on 310gsm Fabriano paper. Size: 42 x 59 cm (A2). The diameter of the image is 37 cm. Limited edition of 50.

A digital illustration to visualise data using a pie chart of pigeon feathers, to demonstrate the average colour of pigeons observed over a year in Leicester. The work was part of a Citizen Science project at Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology, to find out why pigeons exist in a variety of colours.

The bright red imagery was taken from an early stamp created for the Pigeon-Gram service on the Great Barrier Island (New Zealand), produced when the Pigeon Post service began between the island and Auckland in 1897.

The work comes with an individual hand written thank you note from Lucy. Each work is an original and hand made by Lucy, in Leicester at her home or studio. All postage is via Royal Mail special delivery.
