Large black crow with a "Penn's" tobacco tag and a "5" on his chest. This stately songbird from Mullanium is detailed watch parts and ruler wings and stands on wheels. A chain around the neck and a compass is inset on the back.
Jim and Tori Mullan start by hand painting each bird and then add a variety of vintage pieces when creating their song bird sculptures. The unusual relics they use give each inspiring bird his own personality. The Song Bird collection was inspired by Mullan's fascination with birds and antique objects. Objects that were cast aside as useless are used in the art to demonstrate the fragile balance between nature and industry.
Standing just about 9" tall not including the wild top feather, this piece is handmade and signed by artist Jim Mullan.
