This week, Cee invites us to post images of sculptures, statues or carvings for her Black & White Photo Challenge. I have quite a large number of statues etc. in the photo files but after my recent post about the hawk I thought I would share some rather more light-hearted pictures of birds.
When, even as a young child, a feather on a pillow would give me screaming fits, I find I can tolerate being close to these kinds of birds; sculptures. This piece, entitled Stork-like Bird, made of wood, steel and copper, was sculpted by Thomas Hill.
This display of avian art was captured indoors and outside in the gardens at the Lee Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin, last year.
The Dance, sculpted by Donna Dodson and Andy Moerlein, uses saplings and plastic bags to recreate two giant sandhill cranes, a real flight of fancy, while the diminutive Common Redpoll, carved by Josh Guge, is life-like in every detail.
