This bird was made by Licio Zanetti. It's been hard to pin down a date, but it is purported to be from the 70's. It's made of clear glass with long white filaments along the wings which are then covered by faint white threads designed to mimic feathers. It sits on a large angular base which stands in stark contrast to long, graceful and smooth lines of the wings. This is a huge piece measuring 20" h x 20" w and weighs a hefty 11 lbs. As with all of his pieces, it is signed on the base, "Zanetti L." As always, thanks for looking.
