Jackson, the three species chameleon

Jackson is inspired by three different chameleon species: Furcifer petteri, Furcifer timoni and Trioceros jacksonii.

Furcifer petteri and timoni are both endemic to Madgascar and are, sadly, endangered species.

Meanwhile, Trioceros jacksonii is native to East Africa, but has been introduced to Hawaii and Florida.

Jackson is fully covered by thousands of cristal and clay beads. It took 4 weeks to complete this piece. Its body is made out of post-use plastic bags and cloth. It’s sustainable art made out of recycled materials.
