Featured Reviews on Black Bird Sculpture
I highly recommend Senor Morales beautiful creations as each of the items that I purchased have made exquisite additions to my husbands bird collection. In addition, his creations are wrapped so beautifully! They make a wonderful present and the shipping was fast with his items well protected for the long journey to the United States. I intend to be a repeat customer as I am extremely happy about these presents that I purchased for my husbands 60th birthday!
After receiving Santas North Pole Team, I saw this as a perfect gift for a friend who collects penguins. Huge success. Great craftsmanship and idea.
Gave this as a rememberance gift and my sister loved it. I have bought several different birds as gifts and a couple for myself because they are very realistic, very well made. Mauricio pays very close attention to detail. I have not been disappointed.

Popular Black Bird Sculpture
Santa Penguin Hand Painted Bamboo Root Statuette, "Penguin Santa"$34.99
Perhaps if Santa hailed from the South Pole, he would take the form of a penguin. This jolly wannabe has donned the colors and spirit of the season in this naturally shaped bamboo root and acacia wood figure. Hand-painted details--right down to his belt buckle--make for a convincing imposter, while the red hat and polyester "fur" trim complete the ensemble.
Adinkra Symbol Bird Wood Sculpture with Glass Beads, "My Lovely Bird"$79.99
"This is my lovely bird," confides Kobina Asmah of this amazing sculpture. Turning its head back on itself, this bird becomes the symbol that reminds one to retrieve from the past that which is useful, and carry it forward. Asmah is inspired by the legendary Adinkra symbols of Ashanti origin to carve this spectacular sese wood sculpture. Holding a seed in its beak, the bird has colorful wings studded with recycled glass beads, and etched patterns on its long neck. The base is inlaid with brass motifs.
Hand Sculpted and Painted Ceramic African Penguin Figurine, "African Penguin"
This ceramic figurine of the African penguin looks up from a rest from his waddles. Guatemalan artisan Mauricio Morales hand sculpts and hand paints this lovely bird with meticulous detail to capture the species' likeness.
Handmade Cardinal Clay Bird Figurine from Guatemala, "Cardinal Beauty"
Mauricio Morales crafts a small ceramic bird figurine that features exquisite hand painted detailing. "The process for making these small animals was something I learned when I was small. Since then, it has become a passion of mine," says the Guatemalan artisan, adding that the bird sculpture is made for, "all of those who love birds." He starts by mixing the clay and carefully shaping the figure, and then he adds aluminum legs and feet. After the bird is fired, he sands it, mixes his own colors and paints the figurine. The result is a charming and precise depiction of a female cardinal complete with red-orange bill and reddish crest.
