This is Twilight Bird, a spirit bird that’s been floating around in my head for a few years. Feels like I managed to capture it properly at last.
Every time I go downstairs to the laundry room, this pigeon tries to seduce me.
"we have incompatible genitals" is now my favorite excuse.

These are haunting and gorgeous and just ever-so-slightly creepy. I LOVE THEM.
Melusina or Melusine is a feminine creature from European myth. A sacred river spirit bound to fresh water and hallowed springs, the Melusine is usually depicted with the body of a serpent or a fish, but, much like a mermaid, she is a stunning beauty from the waist up. This collection of headdresses by designer Jay Briggs celebrates that mythical creature in jaw-dropping fashion.
Bird Hunters, Indus River | Mohenjo Daro, Pakistan

The Indus river valley maintains some surprising remnants of its ancient culture. A stone’s throw from the largest intact Harappan Site (Mohenjo Daro), Mohanis fishermen use the exact style of flat-bottom boat depicted in terra cotta and stone tablets 4,600 years old, and a group of bird hunters still practice a 5,000-year-old method of catching birds. Hunters tie pet herons to a hoop in the river, and then submerge to their necks in the water wearing masks made from real bird skins. They wiggle their heads to mimic a swimming bird and then grab any prey that lands nearby. We know this is the ancient method they used to hunt birds because there are artifacts that show bird hunting that go back to 3,300 BC.
