The juxtaposition of birds and fragile ancient vessels has a deliberate connection. The ancient
Roman amber vessel symbolizes the fragility of all things. Perfumed stephanosis and the
humingbird resonate healing through the senses of smell and hearing. The precious quality
of the subject matter is enhanced by being painted on a background of 12 Kt white gold.
