Another one on the series depicting the holy bird of the Aztec – Quetzal. It was highly revered by these Mezoamerican people.
While you could usually catch this bird in a dreamy shiny environment, here it could be found in a kind of unnatural space. Cold colors are used to underline the distance and insecurity you could feel from the quetzal. Unnatural distance of natural environment and human being.
Or maybe it’s cold in a rainy day and the bird just tries to get warm?
