Myomorphia is a series that focusing on elevating the status of Rodents which are often seen as ground dwelling animals that are lowly creatures, often viewed as vermin even. Animals with wings are generally seen as beautiful, angelic and ethereal - creatures such as birds, butterflies etc. By giving the rodents/lesser creatures wings it’s a playful way of elevating their status and seem in a new light, in the hope that people will appreciate them as the worthy creatures they are.

This piece is of a Stoat/Ermine which traditionally symbolise purity, innocence and fidelity. According to legend, ermines will protect their immaculately white fur from soiling, even at the risk of death. I have treated this one with the wings of an endangered White Morpho to further this symbolism of purity and innocence, feeling it by adding in some mycelium mushrooms which represent spiritual growth, enlightenment, and rebirth. The mushroom's life cycle, with its ability to emerge from darkness and decay, represents the cyclical nature of life, death, and transformation.
