Glyndebourne Harvest Moon Pheasants Limited Edition Print by Alej Ez
Two pheasants on Glyndebourne grass meadows bathed in the light of the harvest moon.
In June 2022 Alej visited Glyndebourne to see The Wreckers, during the interval he spotted a pair of pheasants among the high reeds by the ha-ha.
Pheasants have been depicted in art since medieval times in many cultures. In heraldry the pheasant represents a person of many resources. In Japanese culture pheasants have been associated with the deity Amaterasu, putative ancestress of the imperial family. And of course pheasants love opera!
