RARE BIRD

RARE BIRD

Rare Bird stands 12"or 30cm high created from hand dyed vintage plush.
Rare Bird is like a pink cockatoo but has taken on a whole persona of his own!
We feel he has a touch of Elvis to him or maybe Liberace maybe its just his silk alpaca bouffant hairstyle.
Simon has worked his sculpting magic on this bird his head,wings tail feathers.
He also hand carved his beak from lime wood.
Details include antique silk embroidery of pink flowers and grey leaves to his body and a neck ruffle 
made with petals of the pink flowers and silk organza.
Rare bird wears a removable cape in embroidered antique silk and trimmed 
with vintage rosebuds & vintage pearlescent leaves.
His hand made shoes are made from hand dyed pink velvet trimmed 
with vintage roses and pearlescent leaves.
I have styled him in a still life scene of antique velvet millinery leaves,flowers & fruits
Some of these could be added if he wanted to live under a glass dome.
