The second of the Scream paintings, Jackson calls this a Screaming Bird-Flower,
imagining the birds and animals of the jungle screaming out, as they are frightened
by the sounds of war around them, and as they frighten the soldiers simultaneously,
especially the US soldiers, who are unfamiliar with their unusual tropical sounds,
and far away from their homes by now.
