This life-size bird is carved from Jelutong (Dyera costulata). It has been painstakingly textured by hand and is painted with the finest quality Winsor & Newton and Jo Sonja acrylics. Inspired by the pose of a bird seen at David's local Reserve, this carving is made from four main pieces, the body, head, and two sets of primary feathers. The legs are made with a silver soldered brass core, clad with epoxy putty and textured; the brass cores are threaded, passed through the base of the bird and secured with a 5mm nylock nut. The glass eyes are museum-grade and in the correct colour for this species. The whole bird is mounted onto a small amount of habitat and polished Mahogany base.

Size: Length 24cm x Height 21cm (including base) x Width 12cm
