The new kid on the block ~ Pelican
I have always been amazed by Pelicans, that they are so large yet fly so gracefully. They also seem to have a cheeky personality and an intelligence which makes them stalk fishermen and 'hang out' at boat ramps.
There are many different types of Pelicans but this sculpture is based on the Australian Pelican with his colourings and markings.
He stands at approximately 65cm tall and is around the same in length.
He is made from steel... as per usual, all hand cut, hand shaped and hand rivetted.
He is also hand painted in enamel so will, as a real pelican would, stand outside in the weather for many years to come.
