The Egret

The tall, stately white wader of quiet waters is the second piece of my series.

The Egret has rich mythological associations in many cultures. In Greek mythology, the Egret has been indicated as being a messenger from the Gods, including deities like Athena and Aphrodite. In Eastern and Egyptian mythologies it represents the Sun. To me is a symbol of elegance, balance and the ability to evolve. After almost going extinct in the 1800's due to a massive killing for its plumes that was sought for fashion it made a resilient come-back. I cannot imagine the Coastal calm waters without the presence of this graceful bird.

So I present to you my second piece to my series.... "Illuminate" the Egret.
