About the Artwork
This painting is an imaginative representation of the mythical land of the Dagas, as told in the story of the "Two Headed Bird".
It is said that upon seeing the cunningness of man, the majestic two-headed birds that once lived on the islands rose to the sky and flew higher and higher until they left the Earth and reached the Dagas, the tree that grows beyond the world.
