This bird honors the sprightly rock wren. I always love seeing them out on my walks near my home, standing atop a rock, singing out to the world. What better way to honor this delightful bird than to adorn it in images of rocks! A Rock Wren composed of rocks! This bird is lovingly sculpted from paper mache, paperclay, and natural elements. The tail is a lovely scrap of old dried sage-wood. The wing lines are sweet little twigs I found. The beak is a stone found in the mountains near my home. I sculpted the legs of sturdy wire. The final decorative layer is a natural paper I painstakingly hand drew and painted rocks on.  Glass bead eyes gaze gently. I gave the entire sculpture a protective coating of artist matte varnish. 5" tall, and 6" long
