The Pileated Woodpecker has just been added to our carving selection with only one available at the present time. This is the largest woodpecker, often elusive, but makes its presence known by its loud rapping. It bores into trees, often hollow, searching for a dinner of insects. Usually seen alone or sometimes with its mate, the pileated is a stunning bird not only because of its size but its distinctive red, white and black colors make it exciting to spot.
The pileated woodpecker carving is exceptional in its realism and detail. It is mounted on a simulated tree trunk, also hand-carved of wood, which has a hook on the back to hang on the wall. A large carving, it has an overall height of 16 inches, is 13.5 inches from beak to tail and has an approximate width of 5 inches. This is a hard-to-find carving and one that will please even the most discriminating collector.
All of our birds are carved from basswood (a very carvable wood that does not split and takes paint well), are hand-painted with acrylic paint, have glass eyes and metal feet.
Your satisfaction is guaranteed!
