Bird in Hand

Bird in Hand


The second piece of our Spring/Summer 2023 Collection was completed at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C. Inspired by wildlife in the African savannah, this "Serval" is a carnivorous cat with large ears which helps it listen to the hypersonic sounds of it's prey.


This piece illustrates the classic saying, "A bird in hand is better than a bird in a bush." The historic phrase serves as a reminder to cherish what you currently have, and not to risk missing potential success by tying to pursue something else. Here, the artist reflects upon ways gratitude can often be the key to happiness, and that living in the moment is the greatest gift of all.
