Murder Most Fowl

When I saw this weeks challenge "FOWL" for I thought of "foul play". So here is my interpretation. I am using the images from the famous cartoon movie "Chicken Run" which I found on this website: . The story line as follows. Production is down... Mrs. Tweedy is desperate. The chickens are rebelling. Something must be done. Heads will roll. Rocky Rooster tries to save the day. Unfortunately, the inevitable occurs. The trusting fowl succumb to the evil Mrs. Tweedy.

This is my first challenge for: Marvelous Mustaches is this weeks theme. I wanted to take a humorus approach. Pet owners tend to treat their pets like humans. They talk to them as if they really understand what they were saying. They buy them birthday gifts and some proud pet owners even go as far as putting wrapped Christmas gifts underneath the tree. So, Bronson can have the opportunity to do what comes naturally. Rip the sh....t out of the gift. Some loyal pet owners spend soooo.... much time with their special canine. I believe they become one and this is what happens. So, beware pet owners this could happen to you!!!!!

Mandalas are found everywhere and have powerful symbolism across all cultures. All circles have a center. The center represents expansion and integration of opposites, micro and macrocosms. The center also represents the soul, god or individual. Circles/mandalas contain all symmetries. All of natures harmonious principles are exhibited through its harmonious relationships.
