There's nothing quite like these adorable and authentic seedpod animals to bring some whimsy into your home or garden! This adorable Blue Jay was made using the seedpods of the Ulumbu Tree (Sterculia rogersii). Standing on hand twisted wire feet, it is between 3-4" tall and is hand painted in the rich bright colors of its traditional plumage. How cute!
Raina Mazwiembiri and her two daughters make these seedpod birds using pods that they collect and wire for the feet. The women hand paint each to create these unique birds from Zimbabwe, Africa.
These are are so well made. The blue us vibrant!
I bought this for a gift and am so very happy with the quality. It is really cute. I highly recommend purchasing!
I originally purchased 3 of these seedpod birds in a shop in Ann Arbor and grew to love them more over time. I was delighted to track them down on this website and have since purchased probably 15 more. They perch all over the house and bring me joy whenever I catch sight of one. I've even begun buying ones that don't initially appeal to me, and without fail they all find a place in my heart. This review applies to every one that I've purchased, not just the blue jay (my most recent addition).
The blue jay is beautiful, but I didnt realize how small it was (shame on me for not reviewing the dimensions). I want ti give as a gift and will need to order another one or two
