Since the very first concept, my idea for The Journey
Begins was to made a metaforic one, a Life Begins, a
duplicity. So I think in this piece, a Turtle, borning
in a eagles nest.
As we know, since turtles pull out from their eggs,
the very first action they do is to go for the ocean,
their better chance of survival and developtment. In
opposite of it, the birds offspring STAY in nest,
waiting for their parents, their ways for feeding, and
staying there they will have their better chance of
survival and developtment.
Well, I play with that a little, I put the turtles egg
in the eagles nest, what we could have with that? My
answer is my artpiece, a intrepid and smart turtle,
with no fear in her heart, journing for her goal! She
is smart, because she realizes where she is, and
knowing it is cold, she picks the nest chaff, and put
around her cask, to maintain the heat…;). People may
think, how the turtles egg could appear in a eagles
nest? Well, its a question that every one will have
their own answer, “the mother eagle pick the egg in
mistake” , “a flying turtle leave it there”, “the
mother eagle will feed her sons with her”, well, as I
said its a question that everyone will have their
better answer, but its a good thinking exercise…;).
The eagles flying is a remember of the danger she is
exposed, but I have Faith she will reach her goal, she
is smart, she is litlle but she is strong! I put a
bridge to help her, and the sunrise is marking the
beggining of the the day, of the Life, of the Journey!
I would like to thank every one who help me with their
value opinions and critics, this is my first challenge
and I enjoy it so much, I hope you enjoy my
Better wishes to all!
