"Moon Jellies"

Kenai Fjords National Park, Alaska

Moon jellies, also known as Aurelia aurita, are a species of jellyfish that can be found in oceans all over the world. They are named after their translucent, moon-like appearance and are known for their delicate and graceful movements. These jellies are typically small, with a bell-shaped body that can grow up to 30 centimeters in diameter. They are often found in shallow waters near the coast, but can also be found in deeper waters. Moon jellies are not known to be harmful to humans, as their sting is mild and typically only causes minor discomfort. They are carnivorous, feeding on small planktonic animals and other small jellyfish. Their reproduction is unique, as they can reproduce both sexually and asexually. Moon jellies play an important role in the ecosystem, serving as both predator and prey for a variety of marine animals.

TruLife® Acrylic Face Mount Prints

TruLife® Acrylic face mount prints have a 3d-like appearance due to the metallic print being sandwiched between museum-quality acrylic and a solid backer medium. When light hits the acrylic, it refracts through the artwork and gives off an appearance of having been illuminated from within. These are the most vibrant and detailed prints I offer. Your ready-to-hang print includes a 1/8" acrylic facemount with a clear acrylic or Comatex backing and a rear back mounted floating frame. Estimated shipping time for our TruLife® Acrylic prints is 4 to 6 weeks.
