and functional design of these flying machines are
explained by the work of the intelligent engineers
and aircraft designers who built them. By analogy,
one logically observes that the birds, which exhibit
biological complexity and functional design on a level
far greater than that of man-made machines, are also
the product of intelligent design.
In "Metamorphosis II: Falconfyre," by artist Jody F. Sjogren, two of
the world's most accomplished aerial predators symbolically converge. The Peregrine
Falcon, prized for centuries by falconers and famous for its spectacular performance
as a bird hunter, transforms into the aircraft
that bears its name, the F-16 Fighting Falcon. Both birds are the epitome of
their kind: powerful, majestic, highly specialized, combining the highest powers
of speed and maneuverability with massive, warlike strength. "Falconfyre" expresses
that irresistible association between a flying creature and a flying machine,
suggesting what is logically
obvious to all: they are both the products of intelligence and design.
The Bald Eagle - America's symbol of peace and freedom. The F-15 Eagle - America's
ultimate air-superiority fighter. Two birds brilliantly adapted to their elements,
both a part of America's heritage and defense, converge in this work by artist
Jody F. Sjogren. "Metamorphosis III: Eagle's Eye" is a vision of the
power and majesty of
the unrivaled bird of prey and its strategic military counterpart. From the great
winged predator to the most powerful guardian of freedom in the skies, both birds
show the evidence of intelligent design and purposeful function in their complexity,
beauty, and power.
