Artwork Description

In 2001 I saw an image of the Orion nebula and thought "hmmm, that resembles a bird." Then after a few weeks I saw the bird again, in the window of a shop. It was the Egyptian crane, the benu. After a little research I found out that the benu is the bird the Egyptians used for the phoneix mythology. I found the connection between a bird rising from the ashes and suns created from gasses remarkable and just had to paint it. This is my last airbrus painting so far.
