Papyrus gonolek as circular bird
by Sten Asbirk
I have created a new family of birds called "circular birds" or in Danish "kugle-fugle". They have a nice round body and bright colours. When I discover an interesting bird in nature, I try to paint it as a circular bird. During a visit to Uganda I experienced to see the very rare and spectacular bird species called The Papyrus Gonolek. It lives in the vast swamps of papyrus in Uganda. It is endemic to Uganda, which means that it solely lives in Uganda in the whole world and nowhere else. That bird has now turned out to be a circular bird to remember it forever.
The painting shows the bird species Papyrus Gonolek as a circular bird.
