Sculptures :: Birds :: Small Birds :: Malachite Kingfisher (Alcedo cristata)

This was a very special commissioned by a client to celebrate a fortieth wedding anniversary and to commemorate the many hours spent with his wife on the river in Hermanus, Western Cape, watching her favourite birds, the Malachite Kingfishers. The liquid crystal base in which are suspended little fish, gives both refraction and reflection. The dense reeds, in which it is normally to be found, represent the fringing vegetation on the water’s edge
