Thx a lot. Your works looks epic! I was a high school girl when I did this pic.It is one of my faves in my ages too!It was considered to be in the Palace of ancient China in Xi'an(Tang Dynasty AD618～AD907), and parrots are some of the most popular pets in the Royal Palace~
Well, I think just because the Emperor owned so many wives and the wives were used to keep cats dogs and parrots to kill the lonely times. For parrots can 'learn to talk' that made them so popular. Some of the well-educated Princesses raise parrots to show that they did fell lonely in deep of their heart while they could never say it aloud.
