Beautiful Hummingbird is a photo collage by JT Burke that depicts a carefree hummingbird posing with other figures. It is a fanciful abstraction of pure bliss. The image incorporates objects that represent beauty and items that are dear to the children's hearts. The mural showcases Burke's signature costume/antique jewelry and figurines shown floating, rotating and orbiting with the other characters.
