Detail of “Flight”, sculpture artwork by H. Kurzke, 2019, showing the feet of the bird woman clinging on to the iron cage.
The tower the bird is sitting on is a found object. I believe it was once a bird feeder but I am not sure how it would have been used.
The bird-woman is made from papier mâché, parchment, piano string, wire, linen thread, and paper clay.
The nests are made with parchment, water acrylics, beeswax, and thread.
They hold a total of 10 quails’s eggs, painted from the inside with acrylics.
