This lovely sculpture of a bird by Boniface Chikwenhere is created from found leadwood, an extremely slow growing, long lived species indigenous to Southern Africa.  Very dense, the timber can be challenging to work with, however it is prized for ornamental work and furniture making.
Each one-of-a-kind sculpture is inspired by the character of the found wood, Boniface seeing his mission as completing nature's work and revealing the animal form that he sees emerging from the grain of the wood. Often the wood is left raw in part of the finished piece, the natural and polished surfaces making a harmonious whole.
All sculptures are fumigated and shipped with a fumigation certificate.
