Archipelago - Handcarved Wooden Wheatear Block

The wheatear, captured in this handcarved wooden sculpture by Archipelago, is a small mainly ground-dwelling bird. An ideal gift for bird-lovers and a beautiful statement piece in a room, this lovely wooden wheatear sculpture measures 25cm high and is handpainted by craftsmen in a village in Indonesia which is famous for its centuries-old tradition of wood carving.

Wheatears hop or run on the ground. The wheatear has a blue-grey above with black wings and white below with an orange flush to the breast and a black cheek. In flight it shows a white rump and a black 'T' shape on its tail. It is a summer visitor and passage migrant. Birds breed mainly in western and northern Britain and western Ireland, although smaller numbers do breed in southern and eastern England. It winters in central Africa.
