Escape into the clouds and soar amongst the birds with Emma J Shipley’s new design “Quetzal”.
The intricate hand-drawn design is inspired by the breathtaking beauty of Costa Rica’s Cloud Forest, featuring the mesmerising Resplendent Quetzal birds at its heart, amongst the flora and fauna of Emma’s imagined world. The male birds fly amongst the foliage, displaying their long, sublime tails, while the female, more modest in her plumage, sits within her tropical nest.
These elusive creatures are surrounded by other enchanting wildlife such as hummingbirds, bats, lizards, and a tiger heron, all perched upon the vines and moss of the forest. The animals have been given a surreal and fantastical twist, drawing inspiration from Edward Lear's whimsical illustrations and Georges Méliès' science fiction films from the early 1900s.
Immerse yourself in the spellbinding hues of the Cloud Forest with rich and captivating colour palettes. Verdant greens and teal reflect the lush foliage of the forest, while vibrant blues transport you to the endless skies above. Captivating oranges and pinks echo the vibrant life force of the forest.
Let this enchanting array of colours awaken your senses and transport you to the heart of this magical Cloud Forest world.
