There are fifteen different birds, fish and animals in a continuous frieze around the perimeter. This is the wild turkey stepping out of the grass. Behind the turkey is a carved wood landscape.
Warblers are tiny and precious. So they needed extra representation (2) on the relief. In early May "birders" come from afar to see the warblers on River Road in Kent.
Viewed from above. Wildlife and carved landscape forms are made of painted wood. The frame and lighting components are iron and solid bronze with patinas to match. Hooks below are forged iron. The hooks are good for hanging herbs to dry etc. All electrical parts are low-voltage for safety. Note that the interior "mechanicals" are mostly concealed by the surrounding artwork.
There is a printed brochure that is available for this piece describing it in greater detail. It can also be e-mailed. To get one contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org / 860-671-0153
