Preening Fencepost Duck

These handcrafted Preening Fencepost Duck sculptures glow in handsome hues of red and gold.

Details

A variation on our best-selling fencepost ducks, each preening duck sculpture is unique—sometimes the color is a deep red, sometimes a honey gold. Many times, it is somewhere in between. More than a hundred years ago, homesteaders along the Rocky Mountains staked out new land by planting fence posts around their property. They strung barbed wire, and the era of free-range cattle and sheep came to an end. The cedar was naturally insect and weather resistant, and many survive to this day. About 15 years ago, woodworker Wayne Murray got the idea to create a duck out of this remarkable cedar wood, and now Colorado Springs artist Tim Bergren carries on the same tradition of his mentor before him. Measures about 8"-10" long.
