The most important of all beings in the chieftan’s garden is this tough, but magical flower bird. He can take flight at the sign of any intruder and see to it that no harm comes to the residents of the chieftan’s compound. This sacred bird directs troops and flowers, flora and fauna in defense of his community. I often draw in small journals using pastels, colored pencils and pen and ink. This drawing took flight because it occurred at 35,000 feet on a flight to New York. Because it is a small imager, please view this in the larger format.
