This Mid Century ostrich is quite fabulous. If you are a bird lover and you like unique sculptures, you have found one. It's very regal looking and it's substantial in size. It measures a foot wide and 17 inches tall. Weighs close to ten pounds. The base is made of wood and it's handcarved. Look at the detail in the plume (last pic). The body is made of solid wood but I am not sure what kind of wood this would be. I see this in an office of someone who's been on many African safaris or even a zoo keeper. Great piece for years to come to pass down to many generations. There are a couple of minor scratches on the belly but are not noticeable. Great vintage condition.
