This is the eighth painting in my Graduate Thesis, “Jātaka Tales of a Budgie-Sattva”. A dancing shaman with a head of a parrot skull jumps wildly against an emerging night sky. The figure’s cavorting happens in the company of various parrot and budgie totems who lend mystical power to the unfolding freestyle sorcery. On the wrist of the shaman is a prayer bracelet; a symbol of the Budgie-Sattva. The whole episode plays out beneath the radiance of a full moon.
