    Now, that is what i would call a funny winged duo. Very well done and the painting is perfect.

    Great piece but I thought turkeys were only native to North America. Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey to be the symbol of the US rather than the Bald Eagle.

    Phil, I believe the vignette is allegorical.
    It represents the Polish Winged Hussars stopping the Muslim Ottomans (Turkey) from conquering Europe.
    The turning point for the Islamic tide was the battle of Vienna that took place on 11 September 1683.
    Many people believe that it wasn't coincidental that the same date was chosen for the devastating events of 11 Sep. 2001 at NY.

    Which came first—the Pilgrim or the turkey?
    Wild turkeys were probably first domesticated by native Mexicans. Spaniards brought tame Mexican turkeys to Europe in 1519, and they reached England by 1524. The Pilgrims actually brought several turkeys to America
    on the voyage in 1620.

    AS noted above, turkeys were in Europe at the same time as the Winged Hussars so such a scene would be possible.
