The Silver-eared Mesia is a true wonder of nature that fills the heart of any artist with admiration. It gets its name from its unique silver ear coverts, which are like tiny jewels adorning its otherwise striking black and yellow plumage. Found in the montane forests of Southeast Asia, this bird’s sociable nature and harmonious chorus of melodic calls add beautifully to the symphony of the forest. 

Intriguingly, the Silver-eared Mesia is known for its communal nesting, where multiple females collaborate to raise their chicks. Silver-eared Mesias primarily feed on insects and small invertebrates, contributing to insect control and acting as indicators of ecosystem health. Their role extends to aiding seed dispersal when they consume fruits, which indirectly benefits plant regeneration. These birds play a vital part in maintaining the balance and biodiversity of the lush, misty landscapes they call home.

Museum Grade Archival Printing

All prints are done with high quality archival pigment-based inks on 100% acid-free, museum-grade fine art papers.

Gilcée Prints (or Archival Prints) are designed to last you a really long time. These are printed on an inkjet printer which ‘sprays ink’. These printers use 12 pigment-based inks instead of the usual 4 dye-based inks, so colour reproduction is more accurate.

The paper is also textured, similar to the papers that the original paintings are made on, making them look very much like an actual painting, rather than a print. 

There can be a minor difference in colours in the physical prints from what you see on screen.

I love the quality of the print!

The print is beautifully “vivid” and I love it. I really like the quality - it’s very immersive and brings the details out. Really appreciate the note and the packaging was easy to open and the instructions and specifications are a nice touch and helpful. I look forward to framing it soon!

Frequently Asked Questions

Will the artwork look exactly like the images?

Please note that you're looking at digital images of the artwork. Each and every laptop or phone screen displays colours differently. Expect mild variations in colour from what you see on screen.

I assure you that the print inevitably looks 100 times better in person. 😄

What medium was used for this artwork?

All these paintings were done using Artist Grade Gouache on Italian Acid-Free Hot Pressed paper. This is a printed reproduction of the original artwork. If you'd like to view my originals, click here.

Is the frame included?

No, the price includes the artwork, without the frame. The frame shown in the image is for representation purpose only. If you'd like to discuss options of framing, please write to after placing your order.

How should I preserve the print?

To ensure longevity, please try not to handle the print with bare hands, or clean and dry your hands thoroughly before handling.

Keep the print out of direct sunlight as that can cause mild discolouration of the paper over time.

The print is done on museum grade acid-free paper. However, framing it with glass would help you to protect it a lot better.

When framing, use a mount board to prevent the glass from directly touching the paper.

When will the artwork be shipped?

Your artwork will be shipped within 10 working days after your order is placed.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, the shipping cost will be added at checkout. Please write to for any queries.
