'The Conference of the Birds'

"Birds of a feather, returning home at dusk, with the knowledge of distant worlds." This was my entry for the 2021 international art competition hosted by Atomhawk Design Ltd. This year's prompt was "The Return." Having read the short story "The Approach to Al-Mu'tasim," by Jorge Luis Borges, soon after creating this piece, I decided to title it "The Conference of Birds," as an homage to the poem referenced in Borges' story by the Persian poet Farid ud-Din Attar which deals with a similar journey of meaning taken by a group of birds.
