I've always thought that birds have the most beautiful skeletons of animal animals that I have seen yet. So imagine my delight, when, walking home one day, I found, sleeping gently upon the mulch, a bird corpse with very little of the flesh and feathers remaining. I ran to the safeway to get some disinfectant and gloves, and, to the amusement of passersby, spent a good hour in front of the safeway peeling the remaining flesh off of the departed dear. Ah... but what was this? The disinfectant was dissolving the bone! I quickly pulled it out of the now-grimy liquid, and lo! in the thinner sections of the skelly, the bone had become translucent! I was stunned by the beauty, and so, of course, I had to it on my head (because god knows, my head needs all the help it can get.) The result lies below.

I think I LOVE this! I too have a thing for bird skeletons. Bonus points for cleaning your find in front of the safeway!

How strangely beautiful. I never would have thought of this and if I had, never would have executed it so well. LOVELY!

The bird skeleton is beautiful, and you complemented it really well with your design choices.  I absolutely love it!

Wow. This is . . . how can I put this . . . morbidly beautiful, maybe? Tongue It is a fantastic piece, very Tim Burton/Corpse Bride-ish. It's almost got an antique vibe with the colors and the jeweled flowers. I love it. Smiley

I had NO idea this was made with bones when I saw the thumbnail!!!  I LOVE the antique-y vintage-y-ness of it, very beautiful.  And I second the bonus points for cleaning your prize in front of the grocery store!  LOL!

Surreal. Reminds me of the masks in the ball scene in labyrinth. Would be awesome.

Oh man when I see this I see the amazing photography opportunities  with my niece she could soo where something like and look stunning in it. Great work I think its a reasonably strange and wonderful unique way to recycle nature.

I'm a healthy combination of disgusted and awed by this. It's very pretty, I love the antiquated look. I actually like to sculpt bird skulls from polymer clay, so the look I love. Death things just creep me out.
