Great for your folk art or bird collection! This hand carved bird would be an interesting decorative piece on your shelf. Measuring 5 ½” long, 2 ¾” at its widest, and 4 ½” tall, the bird displays nice movement in its carving. Carved from either mesquite or bois d’arc wood, the artist took advantage of the wood grain pattern, which makes an interesting darker marking down the bird’s body. The eyes have been inlaid with other wood, but the carved beak has been stained. He is fastened to a simple triangular wood stand by way of two metal rods. Underneath the bird you can see that the artist had to adjust the placement of the rods to make it balance correctly on the stand (there are a couple of extra holes in the bottom of the bird). The piece is in excellent condition with no nicks, age cracks, or chips.
This would be a wonderful addition to your collection. Please contact us if you have any questions.
