Well here’s a nice little scoop for the day. Like the Whale Bone Grove, Aaron Horkey’s Detritus art print will have a special release through Mega-Fauna (including Burlesque’s Japanese distributor), this time in more of a white/silver colorway (with spots of transparent metallic gold). The official name of this version is “Detritus – JP (Zangai)”. It is approximatley 14″ x 28″ with an edition of 60. There are also Kraft and Steel Grey variants being produced. Like the regular version, the Japanese version has unique hand embellishments on each print. The 12 egg cases are painted and highlighted, the keys are numbered and painted, and the unique blood on the ray and red writing at the bottom were done in ink mixed with Horkey’s actual blood. There is also a unique word or phrase hand-written in each print’s Mega-Fauna scroll. The price and release date will be announced soon in the Mega-Fauna newsletter and at Mega-Fauna.com.
EDIT: This will be released at the Mega-Fauna opening in Japan this Saturday, then will be online at a time to be announced soon. The price will be ¥58,000 including tax, shipping, insurance, and all other fees.
