Double sided Snakebird wood burning
by Scott Ferry
Anhinga or Snakebird portrait (on one side) and a drying feathers in the light (2nd side).

Anhinga is a water bird of the warmer parts of the Americas. The word anhinga comes from the Brazilian Tupi language and means devil bird or snake bird. The origin of the name snakebird is apparent when swimming : only the colored neck appears above water so the bird looks like a snake ready to strike.

In order to dive and search for underwater prey, including fish and amphibians, the anhinga does not have waterproof feathers. Because the anhinga is thus barely buoyant, it can stay below the surface more easily and for longer periods of time.

If it attempts to fly while its wings are wet, the anhinga has difficulty, flapping vigorously while "running" on the water. As do cormorants when drying their feathers, the anhinga will stand with wings spread and feathers fanned open in a semicircular shape, resembling a male meleagrine, which led to the anhinga being referred to colloquially as the "water turkey" or "swamp turkey."

size is 4x4 inches.
It can be hung by the string which is attached. The string can be adjusted to whatever height you choose. It can also be used as an ornament.

Beautiful and unique hand made piece. Good quality wood, gorgeous design and just the right amount of shine to the paint. Love that it is double sided. We have it hanging on our front door to enjoy seeing daily. Thank you so much for the craftsmanship!
