Guacamaya is the Mayan name for macaw or thick-billed parrot which is a common bird in my home country of Costa Rica, Central and South America. Their feathers have been highly desired dating back to the pre-Columbian civilizations such as the Incas. They were often used as adornments in ceremonies. Many species are now endangered and even extinct. They are now protected. I honor their beauty and hope for their continued recovery as a work of living art.
