Triste Trieste

Over a period of two weeks in September 1983 in the Gulf of Trieste, a high biomass macroepifauna community suffered mass mortality. The Ragactis Pulchra sea anemones managed to survive the low oxygen levels, although they did appear somewhat stressed.
I designed this rather fetching hat to commemorate the event.
Pen and ink with watercolour. 23cm x 16cm. Click to enlarge.

They also catch flies. Italo Svevo gave one of the to James Joyce as a payment for English lessons.
