#7 Remarque: "Mallard Rising"

There is nothing random in nature; everything is structured.  Though an animal sculptor does not need to be a scientist he must know and understand the important bones, joints and muscles, not only where they attach but how they articulate.  In addition to this knowledge the bird sculptor must know the major feather groups.  The feather sets are basic and every bird has the same groupings, from the tiny hummingbird to the gigantic albatross, the mallard duck and beyond.

Mallard Rising was modeled life size and is suitable for outdoor installation or for a water treatment to create a fountain. It can also be presented on a walnut base.
