This bird statue was a Christmas gift for my father who is very hard to please. I usually save him for last on my list. When I was shopping on Overstock during the holidays I went to Worldstock. When I saw that statue, I knew it was for him....and I was right! First he started laughing because of the "oddness" of the piece. Then he kept turning it around repeating, "I absolutely LOVE this!" It was the perfect gift for the "hard to buy for person" who seems to have everything.
