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.
