The Birth of an Eagle paintings are a continuation of the works on paper of the same series created in Istanbul in 2012. Like all eagles, this one must come from an egg, and like all eggs, it must be contained by a nest. But when the eagle is a lie that falsely represents power and freedom to a people, what would this nest look like? and at what point between hatching and becoming the eagle of saladin would it become this lie? if twigs are wood, would the nest of a an eagle that is to become a lie be made of false wood? This series of works on paper explores these questions.
