The feel of this bird surprised me...smooth and slick like clay. Unbelievable how the artist captures the pose and personality of the birds. Thank you Mauricio!!

"This peregrine falcon is really special!"

I have purchased three lovely birds from Mr. Morales, and I love them all. They are very carefully painted and look so real the wire legs and feet look real too. You can tell he really likes birds by the way he paints them. I have them all around my apartment, like they are peaking around corners or keeping an eye on the other birds. So cute! I plan to buy more in time. Thanks Mr. Morales.

I have purchased a few birds from Mr. Morales, and I love them all. They are very carefully painted and look so real, you dont notice the wire legs and feet. You can tell he really likes birds by the way he paints them. I have them all around my apartment, like they are peaking around corners or keeping an eye on the other birds. So cute! I plan to buy a few more in time. Thanks Mr. Morales.
