This seaweed was collected by Professor William Henry Harvey from Australia in 1858 & taken to Trinity College, Dublin. In 2012 I gained permission to see the extensive collection of 150 year old Australian seaweed. Buried away in old cupboards it was paper thin, but had retained its glorious pink colour, & this print is a celebration of its survival.
