The Egyptian vulture graffiti are ready!19.08.2013
In the last five days artists from „140 ideas“ were drawing a wall in „St. Kliment Ohridski“ school in Haskovo. Yesterday in the late evening, they finished their work. The mural painting, as the boys call it, is composed of five components, representing the life cycle of the globally threatened Egyptian vulture: (1) A young, inexperienced bird and an egg in their nest symbolise the beginning of life; followed by (2) the very first flight – the start of the jurney to our own destiny; (3) passionate traveler – mature bird in the apogee of its strength; (4) an old and wise vulture with deep wrinkles on the face – exactly as it happens with people; and finally (5) the last drawing is a "mirror of the beggining", where the old bird creates the new generation at the end of its life. Although in lineal configuration, the composition represents the circle of life typical for all creations on the planet – from the smallest plants and animals to the giants in the oceans and humans.
The BSPB is very grateful to our colleagues from „St. Kliment Ohridski“ school and deeply obliged to Niki, Venci and Ivo from 140 ideas for the realization of this art project. The „Return of the Neophron“ team is hoping the images from the wall won’t remain the only proof for the existence of these remarkable birds.
