This stunning fine art print brings the magical leafy seadragon to vivid life. Scientifically rendered in exquisite detail, the delicate fins and fronds of Phycodurus eques seem to sway as if underwater. Few sea creatures inspire wonder quite like the leafy seadragon, with its whimsical appendages and chameleonic abilities. Equal parts seahorse and seaweed, this stealthy swimmer blends into its surroundings to avoid predators. But camouflage is no match for the keen eye of illustrator Dr Lindsay Marshall, who captures every nuance of the leafy seadragon’s intricate anatomy in this gorgeous giclée print. Whether you first spied this seahorse doppelgänger while scuba diving Australia’s coastal reefs or have simply long admired its otherworldly allure, this peerless portrait is a must for any ocean aficionado’s abode. Hang it in a place of pride and let your imagination dive deep.

BACKING BOARDS. Backing boards are provided upon request for small and medium prints. They are not really required if you are going to frame your print soon and will end up going in the rubbish. As a small business owner who is concious about my environmental impact I like to provide this as an option. Small and meduim prints are sent flat in rigid mailers and large prints are sent rolled. If you specifically would like to buy a large print with a backing board I can arrange this. It just might cost a little extra in postage. :)
