Bitterns in the Brush - North American Bird Series - Vitreous Enamel on Copper Wall Art…
You will need to be an Eagle Eye to spot a Bittern in the Brush! This streaky, brown and buff heron is camouflaged in the reeds of freshwater marshes in North America. Looking very closely, you may be able to spot the bittern’s yellow eyes that give the bird’s face a comically startled, cross-eyed appearance. The bittern is known to strike the “concealment pose” when it perceives a threat. In this famous pose, the bittern points its bill skyward, elongates its body, and even sways with the breeze - all to blend in with its reedy surroundings.
The Bitterns in the Brush triptych has three enameled panels, each depicting a portion of the complete scene. The hammered surface texture increases the reflective sparkle and projects the bird forward from the background.
This handmade Vitreous Enamel Art can be hung on your wall, displayed on a shelf, or placed on a tabletop. The overall presentation is enhanced by the enamel panels appearing to float above the elegant acrylic background in a deep gallery frame. Each wall piece is completed with a hanging wire and a dust cover backing. We also include: information about your special piece and the artist, a complimentary wall hanger with nail, and felt bumpers - so you are ready to hang your new piece the minute it arrives!
