Laysan Apapane

ArtistPatrick Ching
InspirationThe crimson colored 'apapane honeycreeper existed on Laysan Island in the northwest Hawaiian chain. Artist Patrick Ching lived months of their life on this island as a wildlife biologist and ranger. Ching never saw the laysan 'apapane because it had gone extinct many years earlier.

The male singing on the erogrostic grass was painted from a clack and white film clip of one the last three birds in existence just before a storm blew the birds into extinction. A laysan rail (also extinct) approaches the center of the painting. Also included in the painting are the lay laysan finch, Hawaiian monk seal and the green sea turtle. The plant life includes the nama, native portulacca, erogrostis grass and phouehue, beach morning glory.
