3rd Place, Gambels Quail
Northern Carvers Club, Loveland, CO

California's Gambels Quail are so darling with their little top knot feathers.

This is another mini piece. The bird itself is only about an 1" overall. Think about how carefully and slowly Tom had to work to not break this off as he carved it. Then he had to be sure and break it off while sculpting the next features.
Again, this is 1 he handed to me to paint and said, "NOW, DONT BEAK IT.! No pressure at all! Right!

the base is Travertine on Walnut.
