Description
Standing amidst luxuriant foliage are two birds, a dove at left and a stork at right. The stork, (or possibly an egret), has bold white feathers, a small head tilted slightly upwards, and very large feet standing firmly on a branch. With very delicate coloration of alternating black and white on the wings and touches of blue and pink the dove appears about to move from its perch; watching with a keen eye its surroundings of swirling branches, leaves and flowers. - (PF.5314)
