LARGE HANDCRAFTED CROW IN WOOD, CARVED IN SUFFOLK, ENGLAND

This stunning wooden crow has been hand carved and painted by Robert Hume, a wildlife artist (and Pavlova & Fox team member) living in rural Suffolk, England.

Inspired by the beauty of British wildlife, this original work has been painted using fine oil paint, which adds texture and depth to the piece, and mounted on pieces of tree branches found fallen in the woods of Suffolk.

Night-sky black and the odd splash of platinum and silver have been used to create an original and striking ornament that looks fabulous as a table or mantle centrepiece and equally as dramatic on a windowsill or on shelving. The crow would also look wonderful placed as a bookend or in prime position on a wooden desk.

The back of the hare is painted black.

This crow would also make an original and much appreciated gift for bird and wildlife lovers.

Vital Statistics:

Height at tallest point: just under 30 cm.
Width at widest point: just under 18 cm.

The Fairytale Bit: 'The Seven Crows' is a little known fairytale collected by the Grimm brothers. It tells the tale of seven lazy and selfish brothers who are transformed into crows. Their only sister goes to look for them and through her kindness gradually breaks the spell that turned the boys into crows.
