Shangri-La Bird of Paradise
Bird of paradise is the most beautiful feathered creature in the world.
Europeans discovered them in New Guinea and believed them to be visitors from paradise and have since called them birds of paradise.
The theme of Shangri-La Bird of Paradise series is inspired by these joyful wonders of nature. When it comes to courtship, birds of paradise inflate their throats, show off their plumage, and perform the most exotic dances to win the hearts of their intended mate.
