When I was working on this piece I came across a Navajo legend by accident. The legend called Tohono O'Odham. It tells the story that in the beginning butterflies could also sing however the songbirds became jealous and complained to the Creator because the butterflies were so beautiful and could sing. The Creator agreed that the songs belonged to the birds and took away the butterflies' ability to sing.
Even though I have never encountered with this legend before I almost finished this piece and therefore has nothing to do with it really, it's quite uncanny how things turn out sometimes when you are "in the zone".
This piece will debut as a limited art print at this weekend's London Film and Comic Con.
Edit: This was one of the most popular pieces at LFCC! All prints sold out! Thank you for everybody who purchased one!
Yes, as usual you put your finger on it right away. The intention was to create a scenery after the conflict. You know, like a crime scene. The things remain tell the story. Thank you!
Its nearly perfect!
