Slonem says, "Birds signify divinity in their ability to leave the realm of earthly constraints behind through their ability of flight, as a direct metaphorical transcendence from the realm of man to that of spirit.” While, often using the color white to portray the spiritual purity of his subjects, Slonem, repeats these motifs on an epic scale in an act of visual and artistic mantra.
