HAYDON WILLIAMS

AVIAN PORTAL

The experience of gliding and swooping over the landscape, a common dream . In celebration of the Red Kite, a bird of prey reintroduced to parts of the UK. Within the Chilterns(Buckinghamshire) one of the release sites, numbers have increased greatly - a wonderful sight above the motorway. A contrasting idea and one inspired by Quetzalcoatl the Feathered Serpent . A deity of the Aztecs. Considered a primordial god of creation - a giver of life, the image is one of belonging to both earth and sky.
