Description by the maker: Apus is a constellation in the southern sky that represents a Bird of Paradise. In Greek, Apus means 'with no feet' as the Bird of Paradise was thought, at one time, not to have any. You will notice that our Bird of Paradise, as its Greek name indicates, has no feet. Celtic illuminated letters that use animals to create the letter forms are our inspiration for our representation of this noble, footless bird.
