Quick Overview

A beautiful, dark gray and white Junco by woodcarver Tony Dills of Weaverville, NC.

Product Description

This sweet "snow bird" was carved and painted by Tony Dills from Weaverville, North Carolina.

Nature has always been an important part of Tony's life. He worked for 30 years with the animals at the WNC Nature Center, and has had an interest in bird carving since he was a teenager. Edsel Martin, renowned whittler, was one of Tony's first carving teachers. "Edsel showed me how to carve birds; he'd carve half a bird and give it to me and let me carve the other side. I learned quite a bit about carving birds from Edsel."

The Junco is perched on a piece of driftwood; bird is approximately 5 1/4 inches from beak to tail, and the sculpture stands 4 1/4 inches high.
