Feather drawings by Pirmin Näf

Artist and environmental scientist Pirmin Näf manages to depict the beauty of nature in timeless art. He has shown feathers of many species of raptors and owls in masterful drawings - from 'Aquila chrysaetos' (Golden Eagle) and 'Bubo bubo' (Eagle Owl) to the 'Gypaetus barbatus' (Bearded Vulture), a bird, that was recently reintroduced in the swiss alps. With very few exceptions these feathers were found in the natural habitat of the respective species. They are drawn from nature and executed in life-size in graphite and colour pencil on paper, without electronic aids. Each drawing is signed, inscribed and dated.

"Erzählst du uns eine Geschichte?", fragt Linnéa.
"Was möchtet ihr hören?", fragt Natascha ihre Grosskinder.
"Von dir, Grossmama", sagt Linnéa und setzt sich neben Elias auf das Sofa.
"Ich erzähle euch Geschichten, die ihr von niemand anderem hören könnt. Angefangen hat alles auf einem Schiff", sagt Natascha und beginnt zu erzählen.
