The Central American region, from where I am from, is a very rich area in many ways, but the nature from here is outstanding. Actually, Central America is part of the Mesoamerican biodiversity hotspot, boasting 7% of the world's biodiversity. I found my inspiration on the national birds from the north triangle: Guatemala, Honduras and my loved El Salvador, taking from them their most iconic features and doing my best to represent the three in one design.
From the aesthetics, the feathers, the colors and the vibe from the three: The Quetzal from Guatemala, the Honduras' Scarlet Macaw amd El Salvador's Torogoz or Talapo, placing them in the tropical, warm environment we have, as a portion of the American continent's Heart in one piece.
The mixture between the three, and my inspiration from this challenge, is very significant in this month of September because we commemorate our Independence as a region.
