Finnish artist Oiva Toikka’s birds can be pure imagination or, as in the case of Eurasian Woodcock, a very realistic representation. Toikka has captured all the characteristics of this species: the extraordinarily long beak to forage for food in soft ground; subtle brown markings perfect for blending into wooded surroundings; a stocky build common to waders. One almost expects this bird to begin swimming at any moment. Eurasian Woodcock has a transparent body adorned with brown and white scalloped markings. His 3-inch long beak is yellow to lustre color. Head is clear glass. The bird is about 10-1/4 inches long, 3-1/2 inches wide and 3-3/4 inches tall. Mouth blown by iittala artisans in their Nuutajärvi Finland glassworks. Production limited to 2007. This Bird has been signed by the Artist. The item “O. Toikka Glass Bird Eurasian Woodcock” is in sale since Saturday, October 28, 2017.
