Moko Mallard (Urban Duck series)

425.00

Art you can hold in your hands! And unique -- very few artists are using decoys as art canvases, instead of painting them realistically. This is a 3/4 size mallard carved from northern white pine obtained from a sustainably managed forest.

The decorations on this particular bird are inspired by Maori tattoo art, or "ta moko". My concept with this series is what the suave modern urban duck might choose for his plumage. Each duck is unique and will never be re-created.

This duck was decorated with lightfast acrylic inks and pens and finished with a clear satin acrylic varnish, so it is impervious to dirt. It's a pleasure to handle, with its satiny smooth warm wood -- it's a guaranteed conversation piece, and one you can encourage others to touch.
