Go Fish!

The Fishing Season is upon us... just incase you had not noticed.  To celebrate Porcupine Rocks have these stunning snake and yellow fish cushions featured in this months THE FIELD Magasine. 
Designed and created by Evolution Product in South Africa.  Of course there's a back story, like with all our products.  
The explorers of the C17th enjoyed a passion for knowledge and a desire to explore the unchartered spaces. It was their fervent desire to learn more and intrepid nature that look them away from the shores of the Cape into the hinterlands of Southern Africa. They came not to conquer but to meticulously record the plants, trees and animals they encountered on their perilous journeys into the veld. Many of them were devoted to sketching in scientific detail the things they discovered. Aptly named Evolution Product have drawn their inspiration from these historic explorers and have designed a series of cloths and cushions which form The Magic Veld Collection. 

This Yellow Fish and the Snake Cushion was originally a drawing by the German painter Hendrik Claudius who was noted for his 17th-century watercolours of South African plants and animals. Claudius arrived in the Cape Colony in 1682 to look for plants of medicinal interest.
