Details

This vibrant piece is inspired by the fierce colour and movement of the Bird of Paradise. The members of this family are perhaps best known for the plumage of the males of the sexually dimorphic species, in particular the highly elongated and elaborate feathers extending from the beak, wings, tail or head. When in flight, these birds are fiercely beautifully.
