Dwarf Seahorses

Price
$25

I made this print from the original paper-cut design commissioned by the Center for Biological Diversity for their Endangered Species Condoms series. Dwarf Seahorses are the third smallest seahorse in the world, living in seagrass beds in the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic coast of Florida, and the Caribbean. Their numbers have plunged in recent years thanks to the elimination of seagrass, pollution from the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill, and commercial collection for the pet trade.

This is a handmade print, cut from paper and rubylith and printed at Flight 64 studio in Portland, OR.
