Art print on canvas Arctic tern 20x20cm

The tern is a spiny and impetuous bird of a ternary. In the summer, there is a teal with a black cap from the beak and back of the neck. In other respects, it is blue-grey, except for a white streak under the collar cap and it is white on a stalk with black hand-sprung feathers.
The tern is known for its powerful aerial warfare and not only to protects its offspring from robbers but also benefits other birds from breeding in its vicinity.
I vividly remember my travels around the country where my sons were playing close to a teal, urging each other to run closer, yelling, swinging sticks over their heads so that the ticks “could not pierce the head.” This remarkable leafy migratory bird travels the longest of all birds, or about 70,000 km each year, and experiences two summers each year. The picture also shows the French hospital in Hafnarnes, which was recently moved back to its original location in Búdir in Fáskrúðsfjörður, Iceland.

This picture is a reproduction of the original painting by Olafsson. The image is printed on high quality, canvas with the best available printing quality. The picture is signed by the artist and delivered in a packaging tube.
It is a popular gift, for wedding, birthday, housewarming or just to keep for yourself.
The artist Olafsson is known for his nature and landscape images from Iceland.
Among his works are paintings of the country’s magnificent natural pearls such as Geysir and Gullfoss, along with numerous pictures of the animals that live wild in the country.
