Birds On A Wire Red

An old parable states that five birds were resting on a wire. Two decided to fly south. How many were birds are left? One's initial answer may be three, however, the answer is still five. The moral of the fable is actions are more important than intentions. A kind reminder that a truer picture of one's character is drawn by actions.

Capiz is an oyster shell and the primary purpose of the oyster is as a source of food. However, the by-product, the shell, can be used for decoration. Due to it being a natural material, the natural colors of the capiz come through as tans and browns underneath the paint.
