This piece is part of Guridi's series "At Sunset", where animals are depicted with humor and poetic imagination. According to the dictionary a Heron is a large fish-eating wading bird with long legs, a long S-shaped neck, and a long pointed bill. The definition itself is beautiful, but this piece! it's even more glamorous than the words that describe the bird. It has an inner grace transmitted by the long, black ink strokes, and the white peaceful bird in the background.
