This highly detailed
hand carved loon & baby is approx. 16" from tip of tail
to chest, approx. 6 3/4" at the highest and approx. 6"
at its widest.
Bob carves these out
of hard wood, the old fashioned way, rather then using balsa
like so many carvers do. He puts a few corn kernels in so you'll
hear those rattling around. Proof of the bird being hollow. With
balsa they're weighed down with weights. Hard wood doesn't need
to be weighed down. After carving them, Bob paints them in detail.
It's hard to tell the difference between this loon and the ones
on the lake across the street. *:) Yes,,,this beautiful loon
is signed by Bob and this one was carved in 2002. New old stock
just hitting the market after asking him to give me as many loons
as he could find in his vast collection of bird carvings.
