This elegant bird is native to Mexico and central America, but it occasionally strays into Arizona and New Mexico. Lucky you if you’ve seen one! This cloth sculpture was inspired by the distinctive color scheme and physical characteristics of the living bird. The female’s colors are a bit more subdued, but equally lovely. As a nod to their fondness for eating mistletoe, this bird sculpture carries a small bag of beaded vegetation. • Layers of texture and pattern provide endless visual detail • A sophisticated artwork for home or office • Art that tells a story
