Hand Painted Tea Towel - Pelican on Ecru background
Hand printed Tea Towel designed by Yvonne Kiely.
Printed with Eco Friendly inks on 100% quality cotton.
I was in awe when I first came to Australia and witnessed the size and presence of the Pelican.
A docile, large and heavy waterbird, it can soar
up to a height of 1,000 meters and remain in
the air for almost 24 hours covering hundreds
ofkilometres in a single flight.
The only pelican species in Australia it has a
wingspan of 250 – 260cm and also has the largest bill of any bird.
“Good old Mr Pelican, his Beak holds more than his belly can.”
