Elegant Terns are coastal birds that range from california to as far south as Ecuador, Peru and Chille. Though mated pairs spend much of the year apart they always reunite during the nesting season. When they return to the mating grounds they call out to all the other birds they meet untill they hear each others voice. They are strickly loyal to each other and mate for life. Once they find each other they are very attentive and doting throughout the nesting season. When the young are hatched and raised the pair parts ways again untill next spring. This sculpture of a family of Terns is rightly named "Elegant Dining". It is skillfully crafted from aluminum and combines two seperate works of art on one base. The mother keeps her baby underwing in their shallowed out nest. While the father devotingly provides for mother and young. This piece appears to defy gravity. Both the mother and father have individual feathers. All three birds are painted with liquitex fine art paint. Like all of Daniel's sculptures, this is a hand crafted one of a kind original. Purchase includes a letter of authenticity signed by the artist.
