The vintage bird collection, designed by Jim Mullan, was inspired by his fascination with birds and antique objects. The crows were used as hunting decoys in the 30ís and 40ís and the smaller birds were carved in the 1950ís. The original decoys were passed on to Jim in 1991 and just recently he has turned each into an eclectic, one of a kind piece of art. You can see Jimís lively sense of humor in each one of his creations.
The original inventory of birds was depleted in 2009. Now, Jim carves
the birds, faithfully referencing the originals. He then hand paints
each bird, finishing them with the addition of a variety of vintage
pieces. The unusual relics he uses, such as croquet balls, binoculars
and old toys give each inspiring bird his own personality. Objects that
were cast aside as useless are used in his designs to demonstrate the
fragile balance between nature and industry.
A bit larger than some of the birds, and the wheels are a little larger too - perfect addition to your collection. Stands about 6.5 tall with the bird being 9" long, beak to tail. 2" across the wheels.
