LIKE A LADYBIRD by Sally Anne Friedland
A messenger of promise and prosperity, the Ladybird arrives in spring and reconnects us with the joy of living. But while symbolic of elegance, she is swift as a predator. This work explores the tension between the lady and the bird. Driven by survival, each strives to protect herself, her nest and her freedom. Both are decisive and cautious as they populate the world with good fortune and luck.
