This splendid kiwi sculpture was no longer needed by its owners, who were moving back to NZ. I sat this kiwi in the garden for a full two years, ensuring it stayed out for the whole time, whether in hot dry sunshine, pouring rain, ice, snow, or in any other weather conditions I could throw at it (or expose it to). It is an elemental sculpture; it has been predominantly altered by the elements, rather than human hand, above and beyond its original form. It has been changed and shaped by the elements but the process was determined by human intervention. A thoroughly natural (but labour intensive and slightly longwinded) sculpture..

It is made of wood and brass. I have lightly polished the brass after its outside ordeal to make a beautiful soft shine on the beak and legs. I have left the eyes darker to add to the depth of the piece.

There has been some decay and damage to the overall sculpture, which was intentional. I deliberately exposed it in a London garden so that children could play with it, throw it around, stick it in a tree (a kiwi in a tree - you can tell they were English children!!) and generally mess around with it. It is very tactile.

He has a lovely personality, is very quiet and easy to look after and doesn't need feeding.

He's been lightly oiled with sweet almond oil and a little beeswax to preserve his dried out wood.

Dimensions of this fine feathered friend are approx.: 16 cm high x 16 cm deep (head to rump) x 9 cm wide (6.2 inches high x 6.2 inches deep x 3.5 inches wide).

Please convo me with any questions..
