This duck is carved from basswood, in two pieces…... the head and the body. He is a very powerful swift flyer. He measures about 16” long to tip of bill x 6 3/4” wide x 6” high. He is sought after mainly because of his taste. They say he makes a good meal. Too bad for him.

I thin this is now my favourite.. perhaps it is his back that makes it “over the top” for me.. wow.

Hi Dave,

Beautiful piece, as always. This is a gorgeous duck both here and in real life. Thanks for “capturing” him in basswood.

Thanks for the post.
