Blackbird on Watermelon
This patriotic blackbird is perched on a piece of watermelon proudly displaying an American flag in its beak. Hand carved from American chestnut the wood grain peaks through the paint and is just awesome. There are a few worm holes visible on both the blackbird and the watermelon but they don't distract from the piece. The flag is made from copper mesh and wire and the blackbird's feet are also made from copper by the artist. If you like blackbird's you'll love this one!
