Celebration of Life

18"L x 42"H x 7"D
Whirligig circa 19th century

This piece depicts a husband and wife holding hands and heart. Birds in the tree represent their children and off spring. An angel stands above holding a heart and watching over their cherished life together.

Turning the prop sets their lives in motion; the husband, wife, birds and angel's wings all spring to life. Handcrafted from antique heart pine along with antique copper and iron. Dark blue, red, cream and green buttermilk paint is applied to the piece in multiple layers then removed to give a well-worn dry crusty appearance. The piece is hallmarked and placed on a metal mount for display.
