The moon and the sun, the female principle and the male principle, night and day, forces that simultaneously oppose and complement, are constant references in MirĂ³'s work. Like the Sun Bird, the Moon Bird is also a severe form with a polished surface, and its overall appearance evokes certain primitive or votive figures.
The Sun Bird looks more like a bird, while the Moon Bird is closer to MirĂ³'s personages that belong to the terrestrial world. The former is more horizontal, more static, the latter more vertical and dynamic.
