1. Asian palm civet (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus) and coffee plant (Coffea arabica)
2. Greater kudu (Tragelaphus strepsiceros) and wild gardenia (Gardenia thunbergia)
3. Gambian epauletted fruit bat (Epomophorus gambianus) and apple guava (Psidium guajava)
4. Asian elephant (Elephas maximus) and wood-apple (Feronia limonia)
a series of paintings i made for my family as holiday gifts. it loosely revolves around the theme of “zoochory,” or seed dispersal by animals (via digestion and poop = “endozoochory”). some of these relationships only exist in an agricultural context (kopi luwak coffee, bat and the non-native apple guava), but i guess that’s what happens when you pick plants that are also human-favored food items.
