If you love blackbirds this is truly a collector's item! Two large blackbirds in an apparent disagreement are perched on a harvest pumpkin. Their expressions speak volumes! The pumpkin is not symmetrical, its carved as mother nature would grow it, not perfectly shaped! The blackbirds are easily removed for safe shipping. Hand carved from American chestnut there are lots of natural cracks and distress marks in the wood used for the pumpkin. The wood grain is clearly seen through the paint and is awesome! The blackbird's feet are made from copper by the artist.
