Calling of the Birds

Acrylic on canvas, 36"h x 24"w, Item No. 14901,


A boy wandered away from his

village and became lost in the woods.

He was scared and cried out to his creator.

The crane near by heard his call and asked

 “Would you like to go home?”

The boy replied, “Yes I would.”

 “Then follow me, boy, for I can fly high

and see beyond the trees.

Follow my call and I will take you home.”
