Flight, detail

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.
