The sculpture "Paradise Bird" is a stunning creation, utilizing a cross-section of a dry, centuries-old oak tree with a whimsical shape. Suspended on a nearly invisible line is a delicate, transparent blue figurine of a hummingbird, poised as if frozen in mid-air. The figurine gently rotates, giving the illusion of the bird's graceful, hovering movement.
This artwork captures the ethereal beauty and miraculous agility of the hummingbird, often associated with joy and the beauty of nature. The choice of a transparent blue color adds an element of serenity and lightness, enhancing the feeling of a bird in flight.
The base, being a piece of ancient oak, brings a sense of timelessness and stability to the composition, contrasting with the ethereal and fleeting nature of the bird. This juxtaposition invites contemplation on the harmony between the enduring and the ephemeral in nature.
