Drawing Inspiration from Steamship Travel in the Victorian Era

This reverse painted glass chandelier almost has a Victorian feel to it. As a graphic designer, I have always admired the illustrations of exotic birds from the Victorian era. Travel by steamship was exciting and people were going to new lands. East met West often. This general time frame is an inspiration for many of my works with exotic birds, particularly parrots.
