Australian Lyrebird with wings outstretched, it's long tail behind it. From far away it looks like a striped diamond pattern, close up reveals the birds.

Your lyrebirds are fabulous, and your palette - just this side of neutral at a distance - is both rich and serene up close. This pattern would make a beautiful twirly skirt or dress for dancing in something soft and drape-y, like the knit or the silk. Lovely!

thank you so much, guys. @Su_g , I painted it digitally, using lots of references of lyrebirds (they don't naturally fly with their feathers outstretched so I had to use artistic interpretation) but I started with an abstract idea of where I wanted the shapes to be, and then added the bird to fill it in.
This is an interesting aerial perspective of a beautifully illustrated lyrebird ! The layout of your design creates an intriguing abstract pattern!
Subtle, delicate and attractive. I would love a note on process with this design - is it based on a painting, or how did you come up with it? Great to see the lyrebird celebrated this way.
Beautiful design. Graceful and elegant.
