King Penguin Chick by Julien Beytrison: 'Oakum Boys' is the nickname for the brown juvenile King Penguins. (Picking oakum, a fiber such as hemp or jute obtained by unraveling old ropes was a job given in Victorian times to children and prisoners. The fiber was then tarred and used for caulking the seams of wooden ships.) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oakum #KIng_Penguin #Oakum_Boy
This French tapestry Polaire throw from Jules Pansu, captures the nature of the frigid arctic and the familial love that surrounds it. A mother and baby penguin glance at eachother in astoundment as they make their way through the wintry wonderland. Behind them a polar bear and cub glance into the abyss in their lustrous fur coat that is vividly brought to life in this throw. Once again Jules Pansu knows how to use different weaving techniques to bring dimension and softness to this throw.
