'Long-Tailed Duck' (FKA 'Oldsquaw') - Bird Wood SculpturePhilip Nelson
Copyright The Artist.
The main body of this stunning bird wood sculpture has been beautifully carved from a single, solid block of Limewood, and then the delicate long tail feathers were skilfully carved separately and inserted into the main body. Philip then paints the birds splendid colourful plumage in exquisite detail. He loves to observe the behaviour of long-tailed ducks in the wild, and has portrayed a typical pose in this fine wood sculpture.

Long-Tailed Duck- Formerly known in North America as 'Oldsquaw'. It is a medium sized sea duck and breeds in the high Arctic, spending winters mostly along ocean coasts. These prodigious divers can forage as deep as 200ft, swimming with their wings. Delicately beautiful bird whose dainty look belies its hardiness.
