"Parliament” is part of my Eye Candy/ Diversity collection. It is a discussion on the importance and wonderment of biodiversity.
I use the fascinating beauty of the many species of Owls to open up a conversation for humans about being open to our differences. Whether they be religious, sexual, race or gender. If we can find respect and a sense of curiosity about Diversity in the natural world maybe we could come to do the same in the human world. I truly believe that wildlife and nature teach us kindness.
A grouping of Owl is called a parliament.
