Kyoko did a little sketch of a specimen of Adélie Penguin in the National Museum of Natural History in Paris.
She remembers watching a TV program about Antarctica as a child and saw the image of penguins sitting on the egg in the cold wind.
Male and female penguins take turns to incubate until the egg hatch.
She felt penguin parents were resemblance of her parents , keeping her in warm and comfortable place.
Each print may vary slightly due to the hand made nature of this technique.
