Arising from a fun-loving apocalyptic fantasy of giant birds joyriding on top of cars.

The bird on the car is intended as a hopeful symbol of the triumph of nature over industry.  However, the current incarnation is perplexing and exceptional.  This is a palindrome-bird- the body is a second head, the tail a second beak, with a second pair of legs extending above.

This bird appears to be mechanical, constructed of riveted metal plates.  The car seems more organic than the passenger.  With tail-fins and comical teeth, it may have freshly emerged from primordial sludge.
