Sandhill cranes are very large, tall birds with long necks and legs, and broad wings, therefore not apt to be described as dainty. And yet, at the hands of the skillful artists at Herend, these gregarious birds take on a feminine quality. Like a lady of the Victorian era, the Sandhill Crane is defined by its feathers that form a "bustle" over the tail area which the artists have painted in such an elegant, exquisite manner that the feathers appear almost flower-like. Known for living in family groups most of the year, the sweet, maternal vignette of the crane with two if its young completes this very charming porcelain sculpture.
