~ Santa Releases Prized Bird for Peace ~ Santa's Wish ~ 

 "Come Christmas and your goose is cooked." Said Santa!"

I chose Lousie's title for several reasons. The word ECO comes from the Greek word oikos, which means Home. It also stands for being environmentally friendly.Santa is giving us the gift of water through his magical bird, so we may continue to live on this planet we call home. He is also reminding the viewer to think about the planet and it's shortage of water, thereby reminding us of being more eco friendly.

According to Wikipedia

Magnum opus (plural: magna opera, also opus magnum / opera magna), from the Latin meaning "great work", refers to the largest, and perhaps the best, greatest, most popular, or most renowned achievement of a writer, artist, or composer. Sometimes the term magnum opus is used to refer to simply "a great work" rather than "the great work" of a specific person."

This magic water bird is Santa's "great work" and gift to us. Through his magic bird he reminds us that the optimum gift is the gift of life. Without water ~ there is no life!
