Patinated, limited edition foundry bronze of a life-sized Female Kingfisher in a threat display, with Art Deco styling on an Art Deco base.
All are hand patinated, so no two are exactly the same.
Kingfishers are feisty little birds who live life in the fast lane. As they only live for 2 or 3 years, every threat has to be taken seriously. The females have just as much to lose as the males, and so will fight a female rival to the death, to protect her mate, her territory and her eggs or chicks.
Their threat display is seldom seen, but this horizontal pose, where the bird appears to be pointed at both ends, like a dart, appealed to me for the intent it conveyed.
