This piece is a depiction of a bird-man hybrid. This creature has the head of a man and the body of a bird. It looks as though it could be one of those small drawings that were found within the text of stories of that time. The linework in this piece is very thin, with a heavy emphasis on the texture and patterning that is found in the body of the bird. The hybrid is the focal point of the piece, and the space behind that character holds less significance. The piece is composed of very earthy tones, with little variance in value. The medium that was used is not imperative to the interpretation of the work. It could be successful in other mediums as well. The purpose of this image could just be as an embellishment with no deep-set meaning.
