This little guy has been sitting on my piano unfinished for quite some time. I had started on him before I took my fulltime job, but now that the job is over, I can finally get back into my studio and have some fun!
The embodiment of a nest, this assemblage contains real feathers and is labeled with a medal medallion. He is a dirty-faced creature with a vintage button on his back.
The 1940's was a trying time for many. Families were separated. Food was being rationed. Many families lost their men overseas in the war. My Mom's family packed up and moved all the way to California to work at the defense plant. This assemblage is a tribute to those times.
