As part of my oeuvre, I painted the three flamingos in the Atacama Salt Lake region of Chile. The story of the three flamingos in Atacama Salt Lake is a story of inspiration. I am from South America and wanted to bring to the attention the images of the Atacama Salt flats in Chile. These flats are considered the largest salt deposits in Chile and the largest lithium source in the world. The Atacama mountains seemed like dormant volcanos. I thought that it was fascinating that the most significant salt reserves had flamingos living in that area. I always associated flamingos with tropical regions and did not realize that they exist in the Andes and Argentina, Peru, and Bolivia. There are species of flamingos that live in Africa and Europe. I just thought that the flamingos were an intriguing subject. The three flamingos also represent harmony, wisdom, and understanding.
