This piece was created to show the importance of Hornbills is Nagaland culture. The Hornbill is so important to their culture; they hold an annual festival named after the bird.

They see the bird as globally respected, and it has a part in most of their tribe's folklore. They symbolize beauty, grandeur and alertness.

To illustrate each of these views, I chose to use natural symbolism.

Hornbills, beauty and alertness

Buttercup Tree and Flowers, temple offerings, grandeur
