  2. Thank you, K!

    Do you think this feather-carrying bird-person is male or female. I'm still not sure. Walaka says female.

  3. I lean toward female, too, because of the color mostly, and the frayed skirt. But it reminds me of the Japanese folktale, the Crane Wife. Do you know that one?

  4. Ah, yes, the skirt fringe certainly has a feminine quality. Nice observation, Scotty.

    And, I have heard of the Crane Wife, but I'll have to look up the folktale. Thanks for the reference.
