The head sports a red pointed comb with green over yellow feathering extending to the tail.The tail sports long,curved feathers in green and white over black. The tail is carved to distinguish the feathers bringing life to the piece. The eyes are black ,circled in white & red while the beak is yellow. Yellow extends around the sides blending into a yellow-green feathered chest. There are yellow-red extended wings on either side merging into the tail. The bird stands on a black pedestal. The legs and feet are yellow with the feet spayed over the pedestal. The piece is signed on the bottom of the pedestal. The carver belongs to an Old Order Mennonite Community in Lancaster County. His daughter paints all his carvings while his nieces paint panels and canvases. Each piece is made entirely by hand. Each artist is self taught capturing life on the farm into their works. This piece is in excellent condition. This piece is 9"H and 9" W.
