Beaded Bird Collage Picture

Amazing collage picture created from beads and other small trinkets! This handmade folk art piece features a bird sitting on a tree branch with the twinkling stars behind him. Talk about cute!!!

It was purchased from a woman who said her brother made it. He took beads and all kinds of other small doo-dads (stars, moons, even a skiier!) and created pure art. Every time I look, I see something new. The beads and other items appear to be glued to white paper. The gluing seems very secure and I am hoping it will ship without anything coming loose.

In my excitement over it, I failed to ask when it was made. The woman, however, appeared to be in her 60’s which seems right for the look of this picture. The mystery, though, is that the framing looks more recent. It is almost like someone took an old “artwork” and reframed it in more recent years so that they could hang it on the wall. The framing job is fairly crude--just a simple wood frame with plastic instead of glass. The plastic, however, has no signs of yellowing. There is a cardboard backing behind the paper. Hot glue was used to hold the backing and the wire hanger. It’s ready to hang as is but if you wanted a more vintagey look, it should be fairly simple to cut through the glue and reframe this wonderful work.

Frame: 9-7/8” x 11-7/8”
