The three distinct panels within is work containing triangular forms refer to clouds. These are horizon clouds located to the north, referring to Makani’s clan estates. Most interesting here is the portrayal of a march fly in the lower section, beautifully painted with fine details and a heightened realism. Its delicate wings are fully extended, its string vividly apparent and somewhat menacing.
