Sculptures :: Birds :: Small Birds :: Blue Spotted Wood Dove (Turtur afer)

This sculpture was inspired by the parallelogram at school, which intrigued me greatly. I wanted the dove to be able to sit both on and off the nest whilst remaining a part of the whole.
The eggs on which she sits have been cast in silver, iolites specifically cut for her blue spots have been set on her wings.

In one of the further editions I had the pleasure of setting tanzanites on the wings.

Medium: Bronze, silver, Semi precious stone iolites. One of the editions has been set with Tanzanites
Edition: 10 plus an artist proof A/P. The whole edition is sold out
Size: 28cm high x 22cm long x 20cm wide
