|Replica in wood by Wayne Ayers of an example piece pictured in the book "Spiritually Moving."|
The original artist knew the subject well and captured the animation of a startled chicken poised erect with head extended and wings flapping. A balanced construction of 4 rounded forms, it achieves a sense of immediacy, of a moment frozen in time.
Painted in ochre with cocoa-colored painted spots, Wayne's version of this lively bird equally enchants.
Measurements: 18"L x 14 1/2" H x 6" W
