"LITTLE DRUMMER " # 26-1011-4IA (12" Tack Fused Round with Wrought Iron Stand)
This beautiful red head dressed in a black and white tuxedo is the Don Juan of the bird kingdom. Hansom as the dickens in his formal wear, he rarely escapes attention as his "rat tat tat" will often wake you up in the early morning. Drumming his signature song either to attract a mate or advertising his claimed territory.
Unlike like other songbirds, woodpeckers do not have a song they actually "sing" but rather drumming is the way they communicate both to each other, and to other members of the avian community. When woodpeckers drum the sound can be heard for far and wide by other birds. To other woodpeckers, the drumming by its pattern and tempo sends the message that a mate is available, or that this territory is claimed by a strong woodpecker that drums very well. Incidentally, both male and female woodpeckers "drum".
There are many species of woodpeckers but the one most recognized is the Red Headed Woodpecker. In this beautiful art glass sculpture I have attempted to replicate the beauty of nature in this unique bird with a bit of deviation to contrast and compliment the colors of the sculpture. Essentially the chest is normally white, and the bill is normally Grey. I hope you will ignore these differences, and appreciate "LITTLE DRUMMER" as an artistic rendering of a classic bird that lives among us, and often awakens us with a recognized "rat tat tat" drumming in the mornings of early spring.
I have placed "LITTLE DRUMMER" in a setting gripping onto a tree, and complimented his signature red head with hibiscus blooms bright and scarlet.
