Eidolon Helvum (Straw-colored Fruit Bat)



In stock

Eidolon Helvum, the Straw colored fruit bat, forms the largest mammal migration on the planet, when every year up to ten million of these graceful animals move through an area of East Africa. I encountered them while on an art residency at Nafasi Art Space in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, where they fill the skies of the city at dusk.

I love multitudes, and I love to imagine massive numbers of animals like this, all moving together towards their shared goal.
