These small pieces by Lonnie and Twyla Money make a great gift for the avid birdwatcher in your life! Each bird gazes at you, perhaps somewhat warily, from its perch atop a small wooden stump. Handcarved and handpainted. The black bird measures approximately 5" H x 8"W.
Lonnie Money (East Bernstadt, KY) first started carving at the age of 12, following in the footsteps of his grandfather who was also a woodcarver who immigrated to the United States in 1883. Initially carving walking sticks, Money soon graduated to carving figures, as he was inspired by the animals on his family's rural farm. Lonnie and his wife Twyla work together as a team, he carving all the figures while Twyla finishes and applies the colors.
