“Birds have been a source of inspiration to people across the world for centuries. To me, birds symbolize freedom of the soul and transcendence of the earthly human form…The dove is a sign of peace in Judeo-Christianity; the hummingbird is a sign of good luck in Latin America; the eagle was thought to bring messages in Ancient Rome; the parrot was worshipped by the Maya. In my collage, all of these beautiful traditions come together to provide a global portrait of hope.”

    1. I have wondered why the women in Marie Berrio’s works are always solemn. In this one I think smiles might have seemed trite, while the sombre expressions convey resolve and resilience, perhaps the most important foundations for having hope. She does make me pause and ponder. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Patti. 🙂🌺
