Zebras are such an obvious temptation to the printmaker, considering how to depict life in black and white. They are inherently so graphic in their very skin. Though they aren't striped any which way. These hand-pulled linoleum block printed ornaments juxtapose two varieties of zebra, Chevy's and Burchell's. You can tell the Burchell's zebra because its main goes right up onto its forehead, and its stripes go down onto its belly. The Grevy's zebra's mane stops below its ears and its stripes end above its belly.

What's black and white and red all over?

This handmade, block-printed zebra ornament set. Each zebra is printed in black on white, backed with textured black fabric and suspended from a red ribbon.

The Mad Scientists of Etsy challenge for October was to re-imagine the ornament in a scientific light. This on-going creation of a growing wunderkammer of ornaments is my answer. You can find a wunderkammer of ornaments here:
