"Beyond Festive"

Each bird is beautifully painted with exacting detail. Colors are bright and realistic. These are unique ornaments that can be used on a holiday tree or hung in windows to brighten up the view. These are museum-quality bits of folk art.

The beauty of craftsmanship literally took away my breath. I purchased both this and Majestic Cat for my collection, and I absolutely love them both. Many, many thanks to the artist.
