Quetzal at the 2012 Biennial of the WMA

Quetzal has been selected to be displayed during the 2012 Biennial event organized in July 2012 by the Wiregrass Museum of Art in Dothan, Alabama.

Quetzal was inspired by a Art Deco leather book cover. The original piece was a "Marquetterie" - where leather strips of various colors were inlaid in the main red piece. Quetzal measures 18 x 25" (45 x 63 cm). Quetzal's materials are stained terracotta, irridized glasses and gilded mirrors.

The Replendent Questzal is the national bird of Guatemala. It's name comes from the Nahuatl "quetzalli" and means "Large Brilliant Tail Feather"...
