The majestic blue and gold Macaw, otherwise known as Ara Ararauna, is threatened of extinction in most countries by deforestation. Georgia Hardinge, has created a sculptural mask to capture the opulence of this magnificent bird.
Using her signature structural techniques and experience with manipulating materials, Georgia has crafted the mask using card and boning. The Ara Ararauna Macaw is eye-catching with its vibrant coloured feathers in shades of turquoise and yellow. Hardinge has emulated these exciting hues, producing a bold, statement piece.
