Two little quail chicks with their heads raised inquisitively, they are watching to see who is approaching.

Royal achieves the feathered effect by striking the surface of the sculpture with a chasing hammer, which has little teeth. The contrasting finish of the eyes and beaks is achieved by sanding it smooth and then applying clear wax.
