Paintings > Origami Cranes: Still Life Series

The small pretty birds represent not just all the children of the world but also the innocent side of adults who are faced with something strange or unusual and in this case beautiful but dangerous. The flying bird is both like and unlike them. They watch her approach without fear, with a sense of wonder. The irony is that this strange beauty, who is made in their image but not of their nature, has come to destroy them.
