"Nesting" illustrates both birds and a woman building nests for their young.  It represents the similarity of human nature to that of animals.  How we often view animals as savage beasts, yet there is a tender side.  There is a primal care and warmth. 

"The Fall of Icarus" depicts a Greek myth.  It is the story of a man who builds wings for his son and himself to fly off of an island where they are imprisoned.  The son's wings melt and he falls to the sea.  This illustration was featured in my book, "Art Stories, Folktales to Inspire Creativity."
