Alchemical Aviary: Fifth Element (Quintessence) Signed Archival Fine Art Print – Hummingbird’s Heartbeat
This fine art print reproduces my original painting, called Hummingbird’s Heartbeat, created using watercolor and acrylic gouache on paper. The print is created on paper with the same texture and finish as the original artwork, which has a nice velvety appearance.
This acid-free Giclée print reproduces the original painting created in the Alchemical Aviary series. The print shows a Hummingbird in flight, its wings moving so quickly they appear to multiply. It feeds on the nectar from an apple tree blossom, containing within itself the five-fold symmetry of the pentagon. In this painting, the hummingbird is the symbol of the Quintessence, the fifth element of aether, the celestial element that exists beyond the terrestrial elements of earth, air, fire and water. A hummingbird’s heart beats the fastest of any animal, over 1,200 beats per minutes, to support its rapid flight. This gives this small bird an otherworldly quality that captures the mysteries represented by the Quintessence.
