One of a set of seven finest English bone china mugs featuring Jane's original Biro drawings from her series 'In Homage to the Last Great Carnivores of Eurasia'. Hand decorated and made in Stoke-on-Trent to the highest standard by prestigious ceramic designers and manufacturers The New English, each mug has been specifically designed by Jane as a small piece of art in functional form, incorporating symbolism and a "little surprise inside!." Featuring an elegant handle, these contemporary yet timeless designs create unique conversation pieces as well as a beautiful gift for someone special. 'Our Forefathers Our Loss' design features both drawings from the Amur leopard diptych which contemplate the origins and repercussions of man’s fascination with collecting natural exotica from early European exploration to the present day. This is symbolised by a representation of Rembrandt’s 'The Windmill' 1641, as the windmill becomes an exotic folly for three Amur leopards, one of the world’s most endangered species. This stunning mug focuses on an enlarged image of the leaping leopard, it's paw outstretched towards the handle as if taking a swipe at the mug user, its tail flicked inside the mug. A more complete image of the original drawing features on the mug back emphasising the windmill. The interior features the two leopard faces from Our Loss, their eyes peering out of the mug at the world around them.
