Based on a sketch by English artist, Maggi Hambling, I wanted to represent a complete movement of life from birth to death in miniature. The single, decaying feather at the end is a metaphor for death where as the egg symbolizes life. The conception, birth, adolescence, adulthood and decay of the creature can be seen here in one complete movement, from left to right.
OMG so much cutness at once I'm...
This is a really beautiful picture. Besides, I am just so impressed in your ability to make the different stages of life and the bird itself.
Thank you! Yes, it was quite a challenge at first but I'm glad it turned out well!
Symbolic and amazingly beautiful
