Wild flowers were collected from the mountain where the last Irish wolf was killed in 1786. They were pressed for two weeks but unlike traditional flower pressings, the dried flowers were discarded. All that remains are the ephemeral and painterly traces on the two sheets of paper that were used to press the flowers.
