Without realizing it, within a moment of life, swirls of color surrounds Felipe and the black birds in their respective moments signifying bond despite species. Felipe, with his mischievous gaze, is gathered with his brothers under a shaded tree, laughing and enjoying the summer day in the 1950’s. This image is captured, frozen in time, and preserved under golden flecks of wax signifying an idyllic family memory. His five sisters are nowhere to be found. Whereas, the black birds gather to feast while one bird’s keen steady eye holds watch for humans who might disturb their table for four.
