    Folk Art Shorebird Decoy
    These modern sculptures reflects the heritage and collectable nature of a truly unique folk art form - The American bird decoy.  These hand-carved and painted birds capture the character and charm of another era when wooden bird decoys were used as tools to bring wild foods to the home and market.  Glass eyes adorn each bird while salvaged iron bills and legs complete the vintage look.  Each piece is signed and dated by the artist.
