Hand Carved Mini Seagull – 4″
Entirely hand crafted from carving to painting and finishing with wax polish. Made under fair trade principles using sustainable softwood and non toxic paints.
These unique birds derived from a meeting between indigenous folk art and western aesthetics.
Using Albesia and Coffee wood, these fast growing timbers come from sustainable farming practices for continued harvest and regrowth.These designs aim to capture the essence of the bird and are not about technical exactitude. This means random and light sanding are part of the look. This is called “distressing”. The photos represent the birds very accurately but be aware these are individually made by hand and not cast resin replicas. It is this style of painting and finish which makes these pieces unique and so loved.
