Federated States of Micronesia, Pohnpei, November 2015
Painted in 2016. Parrot squinting its eye. The eyeball being hidden from view referring to achromatopsia. The parrot with its squinting eye half open was the beginning of the project; a 'tropical' symbol for colors. It was later colored by an achromatope not aware of which colors she was using (yet applying them quite correctly).
