Archipelago - Handcarved Wooden Bearded Tit

A brown, long-tailed bird, usually seen flying rapidly across the top of a reedbed, this handcarved wooden bearded tit by Archipelago is a perfect likeness.  Males have black 'moustaches' rather than 'beards'. They are sociable and noisy, their 'ping' calls often being the first clue to their presence. They are particularly vulnerable to severe winters and their population has declined in recent years, making them an Amber List species.

An ideal gift for bird-lovers, this beautiful wooden bearded tit sculpture is handpainted by craftsmen in a village in Indonesia which is famous for its centuries-old tradition of wood carving. The sculpture measures 23cm high, including stand.
