"Summer Cardinals" is everything that made Roger Tory Peterson a legendary artist. The birds seem alive, ready to move before your eyes. Wherever you look, from any angle, the detail is astonishing. Preserving the wealth of subtle detail, "Summer Cardinals" is meticulously crafted of cold-cast porcelain. To achieve the lifelike realism, skilled artisans masterfully hand paint the sculpture in vibrant natural hues found in nature.
