Soft Sculpture Purple Martin Nature Decor Art Bird

Modern Heirloom!

A little known fact about the Purple Martin is that for 500 years they have depended on man for nesting sites. The Native American Indians along the east coast were the first to use natural gourds houses for these friends of the over 500 years later they only know how to nest in a man-made structure.

This Purple Martin is completely sewn by hand out of all repurposed fabrics. Perfect for any interior decor, especially lakeside cottage and farmhouse.

Vintage black velvet on the wings, body is from repurposed velvet. Each "feather" is hand cut and hand sewn onto the body.

Inside body base is "sculpted" with a needle and thread from vintage wool and wool flannel around a wire armature.

Body is accented with hand embroidery, new and repurposed glass beads.

Base is a repurposed wall sconce that I took apart and repainted.

Measures 8.5 inches tall and about 9 inches wide.

The Purple Martin is said to bring good fortune to any house where it nests and rears it's young. I just simply LOVE these beautiful creatures. One of my favorite birds!
