Sleeping Sanderling on Driftwood
SLEEPING SANDERLING ON DRIFTWOOD
The Sanderling, a sandpiper, runs back and forth on sandy beaches with the ebb and flow of the waves searching for tiny crabs. The carving is perched on a piece of driftwood and reflects the bird's habit of standing and sleeping on one leg for long periods of time. The palest of the sandpipers, this North American bird migrates as far as 8,000 miles.
The sanderling measures 7" from beak to tail, is 6" high and the carving has an overall height of 10" All of our life-sized birds are hand-carved from basswood (a very carvable wood that does not split and takes paint well), hand-feathered to show texture and detail and painted with acrylic paint. The eyes are glass, feet are metal and base is wood.
The sleeping sandpiper is as shown and is currently the only one available.
