About the artwork
In this particular piece, A horn-bill is perched calmly on the arm of Naidee's seated figure, an endangered species of exotic bird in the Southeast Asian hemisphere. This act of gentle compassion, coupled with the motif of bare feet of the figure exemplifies the notion of man and peaceful coexistence with nature and all its beauty. In a way, the artist calls to attention the importance of loving the earth and all its creatures, practicing kindness and empathy for all living things
