As if viewed from above, this tree is home to myriad birds of colorful plumage. "I created this design as a way of raising ecological consciousness and a call to renew our efforts to protect our Amazon region, so these cheerful birds may continue to live in their natural habitat. Likewise, so we may continue to admire the variety of creatures that live in Peru," exclaims Luis Leon.
