CLAIRE (gyrfalcon) by artist Valerie Savarie

$ 140.00

Altered book, acryla gouache, approx. 7.5” x 4” x 1.5”

In the early 2000s, it was observed that as climate change began to temper the Arctic summers, peregrine falcons were expanding their range north, and competing with gyrfalcons.

Although it is specially adapted for high-Arctic life, and larger than the peregrine, the gyrfalcon is less aggressive and more conflict-averse, and so is unable to compete with peregrines, which regularly attack and overwhelm the gyrs. There is a fear that gyrs will become extinct in their former range within the next ten to fifteen years.




perfection in black and white


stealth and charm

purposeful in every movement

a mind that needs no charm

her passion is all encompassing

with unyielding strength

she is gone
