A very special, limited edition A2 print by Sally Caulwell illustrating the selection of flora from Ireland's 'fertile rock', the Burren. 

Printed by Dublin's longest established photographic and fine art printing studio, Copperhouse, this Giclee print on cotton rag uncoated stock is signed and editioned by Sally. — limited edition of 100.

The Burren is an area of exposed limestone covering the north of County Clare. The barren landscape was once described as "a country where there is not enough water to drown a man, wood enough to hang one, nor earth enough to bury him". Renowned for its botany, there is a curious mix of Arctic-Alpine and Mediterranean species, which rarely appear side by side. The Summer meadows are a blanket of colour and even areas of extensive limestone pavement can be dotted with thousands of wildflowers growing from the cracks in the stone. 

More than 700 different flowering plants and ferns have been recorded in the Burren. Thus, although the Burren represents only 1% of the land-mass of Ireland, 75% of the Irish native species are contained in the area. 

Dimensions: 420mm x 594mm
