This figure is the mother part woman part nature looking out protecting the birds that she has nesting on her leg. The birds I cast in sterling silver are referred to as birds of “birdens”, they our burdens. While things, situations, and/or people may be a burden at times, they are important and precious, for this reason the birds are cast in the precious metal sterling silver.
