    Direct from Japan, this bird sculpture from Multi Glass is a beauty.

    A pheasant (I think) with intricate filigrana scattered over the black interior, before application of some gold leaf and a clear case. She is a simple shape, but her face is sweet with it's beady eye and lovely golden crest.

    The clock doesn't run (even with a new battery) but no matter, who would look at it anyway when there is a bird like this one holding it.

    The last photo shows her with another Multi Glass bird I have yet to post.
    Maybe tomorrow.

      Beautiful Karen!!! You gone to the *Birds* in a very GOOD way !! This is a stunning bird......and it was mailed to you? Wow for that !!
    2. sklo42 sklo42, 4 years ago
      The detail in the body is beautiful.....and in parts so much like feathers that it's uncanny!
    3. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 4 years ago
      Gee Karen, these are really beautiful!!!
    4. racer4four racer4four, 4 years ago
      Thanks Miss Rose! It was packed better than anything I have ever received, which made the suspense even greater!
    5. racer4four racer4four, 4 years ago
      The filigrana is so complex Peggy, I don't know how they do that. It does look like feathers doesn't it! Thanks for the love and comment.
    6. racer4four racer4four, 4 years ago
      Thanks Judy. She is a beauty - I like her better than the taller one, which is impressive in it's own way.

      This beautiful Bird seems to be a bit upset With somthing on Her back:'Who for God's sake put it on me' ?

      It is a beauty, but now it has function also !

      Since clock doesn't work, you could put a photo over clock and make it a really cool picture frame :) I did that with a decorative clock that I had. I took the clock face out and replaced it with a picture of my children and I made a cool picture holder. Just a thought!!

      Thanks Thomas, always glad to hear from you.

      I'm always glad to get your opinion Phil, and happy you like this one. Useful beauty is always a good thing!
    15. racer4four racer4four, 4 years ago
      Good idea Mrs T.
      I may just remove the clock; undecided at the moment.

      Wow, it's hard to imagine how much work and mastery lies behind such wonderful pieces. Amazing!

      Oh Karen, You have even outdone yourself on this one!!! She's a beauty! Seriously, your name is written all over it. And the one in the background too! Nice job!!!

      It's better than the Nike Swoosh!
    22. racer4four racer4four, 4 years ago
      Ha! Thanks Share! I think Nike copied from the Japanese script when they invented their swoosh anyway :))

      Thanks for the love and praise;always happy to have that!
