Catesby Blue Heron Pillow
For the naturalist, the historian, the bird watcher. The majestic blue heron on our fine needlepoint throw pillow comes from naturalist Mark Catesby's The Natural History of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama Islands, written and illustrated between 1731 and 1747.
The bird accent pillow is intricately stitched with a wool needlepoint face. Its blue and purple subject will command attention wherever the 16x20 toss pillow is placed. Imported.

This depiction of the blue heron is taken from The Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands (1731-1747) by famed naturalist Mark Catesby. He was one of several 18th-century explorers who ventured to remote areas of the world to document regional flora and fauna. A copy of the 1771 edition of the two-volume work is in the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation collection.
Catesby found these birds in limited numbers and wrote, "whence they come, and where they breed, is to me unknown."
