Artist's description:

The cassowary is a flightless bird found in Australia, Papua New Guinea, and Indonesia. Like its next-door cousin, the emu, and those in more distant lands like the ostrich (Africa) and the rhea (South America), it still carries ancestral “dinosaur baggage” such as a crest on its head and claws in its feet. Indeed, the cassowary has been known to inflict fatal injuries to humans. There are a number of extant species of cassowary, but the one shown in the painting is the Southern Cassowary, which remains endangered. This is a part of a series of work on large canvases for an upcoming art exhibition on endangered species.
