Much like the phoenix, the bird in China represent auspicious, in ancient times only the queen can use this pattern of birds

How is this possible? How can something like this stand up and not fall over, how do all of your statues able to stand on what looks like very weak structures?

Even though I really love dragons and cephalopods, this has to be my favorite piece of your work. The fluid motion through the piece is so beautiful, and the seemingly precarious stance brings so much intensity. The colors are really beautiful together, too.

It seems magical that it stands on the ground, though normally you wouldn't trust feathers to hold you. I'll just stop thinking and hope I'll never understand how this piece works.

Your an artistic god. Of all the art I've seen on this website and in my life, yours is the best. I really can't put into words how I feel when I look at these.

Completely blown away by how you are able to create something so weightless in appearance! Of the pieces you've made which balance on tail feathers, this is my favorite. Somehow, the way it is standing on curved feathers makes it look even less supported and more like it is floating. Fantastic work again, as with all your sculptures!
