Description
This fine hand carving of a group of Sanderlings sheltering from the cold winds makes a stunning display.

With heads tucked beneath feathers, the birds have been beautifully realised in the plumage and patina of finish. The Sanderlings are mounted upon a natural lime waxed wooden base.

The Sanderling is a small plump wader approximately 18cm in length. The winter bird is very pale almost white apart from a dark shoulder patch where the folded wing meets the body.

Although they do not breed in the UK they can be found forming large flocks on many of our long sandy beaches around the country. As a winter visitor and passage migrant in spring and autumn, they journey to and from their high Arctic breeding grounds.

Characteristically they run along the beach with a bicycling action, stopping frequently to pick up small food items, typically small crabs, marine worms and other small invertebrates.


This product has been skilfully hand carved by village craftsmen on the island of Bali in Indonesia which is famous for its tradition of wood carving.

The birds have been beautifully carved and painted and produced under fair trading conditions to benefit the village community as well as the producer. It has been painted using lead free paints and local replaceable softwood.

Simple, elegant decoration.

Overall Size: 40 x 16 cm high
