Many bird species form long term partnerships for raising their young, and couples may stay together for many years. They often preen each other’s feathers to reinforce their mutual bond.

This charming medium-sized sculpture is suitable for display indoors or outdoors.

Springstone is a hard variety of serpentine stone with very few flaws, and is therefore an excellent sculpture medium. The stone in its natural form is a pale charcoal grey. When an artist sands, heats, waxes and polishes the springstone, it turns a shiny black.
