The story behind the artwork
A fantastical hot air balloon print in a circular shape, with colourful birds and a grumpy moose as passengers. The mouse on its dove is getting a free ride. This modern art print borrows its name from a common Icelandic nursery rhyme, with a bit of artistic licence:
Afi minn for a honum Raud
Eitthvad sudur a baei.
Ad saekja baedi sykur og braud
Sitt af hvoru tagi.
A loose english translation:
My grandfather took his red horse
Travelling to one of the farms down south.
Getting both sugar and bread
a little bit of both.
