Gourd Crow

It took me some time to decide on making a crow out of gourd parts.  After well into the process, I thought many times that it was a bad decision.  I was happier with all the details of feathers that took me many hours to burn, but the final black concealed most of that work.  Anyway, the body, wings, head, and tail were made with gourd parts; the bill is a piece of cedar; the legs are walnut dowels; the feet are of rosewood, and the claws were made from a brass rod.  The butterfly and flower parts in the background are made of gourd parts also.
