This is what a mandarin duck looks like
It has sort of become a personal mascot for me. It's an artistically beautiful creature, querky (being a duck) while at the same time it is named after my second language, Mandarin. I feel this creature represents me as an artist, not just in the general arts, but in the art of language and culture and the way the world works. They say that math and science make the world go round. Well so does art.
