Creating the Mask of the Cockatoo


One day while I was perusing my library of bird photos I came across this one of an Australian red-tailed black cockatoo.

Seeing it in landscape mode caused it to catch my eye.

Since I have developed an interest in creating abstract art from bird feathers, it occurred to me that this arrangement would make an interesting art piece.
