Using early American hunting decoys as inspiration, Connecticut-based artist Richard Morgan carves striking shorebird imitations from native woods and hand paints each decoy to resemble the aged appearance of the originals. This elegant loon preening over its back is actually hollow, with a rattling pebble inside, reminiscent of used decoys that have been filled with wayward shot. Morgan's woodworking skill and fine attention to detail make this the perfect gift for any decoy collector, waterfowl hunter, or birdwatching enthusiast. 18" long. USA.
