Birds on stands.....

Ive been wrestling with making little 'live' birds for a while now. When I say 'live' I mean not on their back with their little legs in the air.
I adore those images you see of little birds in curiosity cabinets and old museum exhibits of little birds on tiny stands with their own perch.
These are the first two that I have made. Little chirpy fellows.
They look really great under glass domes,lets be honest doesn't everything look great in a glass dome!

  1. Oh wow! these are very good and I have to admit, I prefer 'live' look to dead. Having said that, I think all of your work is fantastic!
    Keep 'em coming!
