"Beyond Festive"

Each bird is beautifully painted with exacting detail. Colors are bright and realistic. These are unique ornaments that can be used on a holiday tree or hung in windows to brighten up the view. These are museum-quality bits of folk art.

The beauty of craftsmanship literally took away my breath. I purchased both this and Comfy Cat for my collection, and I absolutely love them both. The white in his tuxedo is more yellow but does nothing to detract from his beauty. Many, many thanks to the artist.
