Birds of a feather…

January 23, 2019

“Birds of a feather flock together…” quote by George Wither (1613) with design by Meredith Eliassen, 2019.


Inspired by a Native American kachina doll motif, this design of a hummingbird warrior is by Meredith Eliassen, 2017.

The hummingbird warrior resides with each of us – the courage to fly in any direction: forwards, backwards, up and down, even as we appear motionless. Darting here, there, and everywhere this warrior embodies paradox that surfaces joy and love.

For Ian.
