‘King of the Birds' original screen print from local artist, Abbie Lois.
This print is inspired by the folklore of how the little wren became King of the Birds. It is said that once, the birds all gathered together to decide a new King. They determined that the best way to decide, would be a contest of which bird could fly the highest. Little wren knew that eagle was likely to win, so he hid himself amongst eagle's tail feathers before the contest began. As eagle indeed reached the highest point, wren snuck out from his feathers and flew just that little bit higher. When the birds returned to land, wren was declared King of the Birds.
