Description

Inspired by Burton Machen's series "The Pursuit of Happiness," the egg "Insight" speaks to all that we are taught to do and to believe in that will make us happy. The hummingbirds stand for the ability to discern and bring into focus the true path to happiness. Swirling with statements about happiness which give way to an ominous sky with the hummingbirds flying high... through it all... and finding true happiness on the other side.
