European Street Team Challenge


Wow! Thank you Nicole, from UltimateOrganicSoap, for choosing my fish as the winner of last week's challenge! Actually, it was Nicole's son who apparently liked this underwater creature!
So, this week it's my turn to choose a theme and collect all the outstanding entries, present them here...and then to choose a winner, which is the hard part, because the EST is full of talented and hardworking artists!
The theme this week is close to me, for I love these creatures. They are familiar and yet mysterious. The theme is birds in literature, legend, mythology, religion or film. The subject is vast, but I know everyone has a favorite bird from a story. What about the dove who told Noah that the flood was over? Or the four and twenty blackbirds from the nursery rhyme? My favorite is the Raven from Poe's poem. Don't forget Aesop's fables, the albatross from The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Quetzacoatl from Aztec mythology. Tell us of birds from African, Chinese, Japanese, Hindu, Mexican cultures. Show us a bird from your culture.
