Elegant Tern

Elegant Tern

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 is displayed in a sitting position, resting upon a stone and is crafted from aluminum. A person could almost imagine that he is looking longingly out to sea; searching at the begining of another nesting season for his life long mate. 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.
