People have been asking me the significance of the White Herons 
depicted on my latest pieces for Montegrappa 
Apart from the obvious aesthetic beauty of these birds, the arabesque of their neck, the grace of their wings in flight, 
the White Heron, is heavy with metaphor and mythology.
In many cultures the White Heron, represents freedom, emotional strength, balance and wisdom, 
and in Greek mythology it is also considered to be the messenger of Aphrodite.
Learning of this mythological reference, of the bird being a messenger of the Gods, triggered the idea to create the White Heron hand painted pens I thought it was a beautifully perfect subject.
