Egret - © 2010 Kristine Taylor, Bronze, edition of 15, 11"H x 6.25"L x 6.25"W
My inspiration for the Egret comes from her statuesque form as she patiently stands in the wetland shallows, waiting for any movement of insects, crustaceans, or fish. She will slowly stretch out her long neck to take aim, and then pluck up the prey with amazing speed. Once the meal is swallowed, she resumes the statue stance once again. Typically white in color, I chose to leave my egret sculpture in a natural bronze color to emphasize the beautiful unique shape of this patient bird.
