Artist Proof made in Canada. Signed by Bill Younger. A Malaysian "Burrows Island" box accompanies this AP.


In the very early days of Harbour Lights production, Artist Proofs were normally left unmarked. Occasionally an "AP" may have been written on the flag but that was a rarity for Canadian pieces. Only when production was moved to Malaysia did Harbour Lights make it a point to mark all of its Artist Proofs.

This piece is also a prime example of what Harbour Lights called "antiquing" A light rust colored paint was lightly applied to the sculpture to make it appear "older". That practice lasted only for a very short time as collectors overwhelmingly disapproved of the process.
