This is an original relief wood carving that I designed and carved in my studio. I carved everything by hand with power tools from one piece of kiln dried Pine wood.
For the colors on this carving, I used some burning, and then painted on my own custom mixed lightfast pigment stains. To achieve the white that will not become yellow over time on some of the head and feathers, I hand painted a primer and then a final top coat of white acrylic paint.
The back of the carving is flat for wall mounting, and I attached a recessed flush mount hanger for a nail or screw head. I also imbedded a counterweight in the back of the feet which helps the carving hang on the wall at the correct angle for which I intended it. I also hand engraved my signature and the year on the back of each carving.
This carving gets two coats of quality finish. First, the wood is sealed with shellac, and then I brush on a coat of exterior grade U.V. resistant Spar Urethane with a "satin" sheen. This wood carving is however intended for indoor use. If you want to place it outdoors, I recommend brushing on a few more coats of Spar Urethane/Varnish.
All of my carvings are very well packed, and shipped fully insured for the rare chance of loss or damage. I have been shipping carvings for the past 20 years, and 99% have arrived in perfect condition.
