About this artwork

Halcyon is a bird, said by ancient writers to breed in a nest floating at sea at the winter solstice, charming the wind and waves into calm. It was 14 days of calm weather, called halcyon days. From this, halcyon is said to be a period of time that was idyllically happy and peaceful.
