A few stages of a visual development of a character Gamayun, a Sibyl bird of Heavens. She made her first appearance in Russian medieval legends and was often depicted in alphabet-books and parchment posters, up to the very 17th century. The references were short, confused and vague enough to offer a challenge I desired. More details can be found in my portfolio.
