Description

Skilled metalworkers in India have for centuries created courtly objects of distinction in a variety of styles, materials, and techniques. One such brass object in the Museum's collection is in the shape of a graceful parrot (Indian, late 18th century), delicately perched on one leg, which may have been used as a finial. Our delightful parrot figure, crafted of hand- patinated bonded bronze, is based on the original brass parrot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wedding gift It's a wedding gift for my niece and her soon to be husband. My niece regards it as the best gift they've received so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful gift—to ourselves After admiring this artwork on display in the museum for years, we bought a copy for ourselves—I'm guessing, at least 25 years ago! And we have enjoyed its cheery pose every day since. At the time, it was also available with a heavy, patterned green granite base. I think it's time to bring that option back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BRILLIANT BIRDIE I bought this sculpture after seeing the same one on display whilst on holiday at Lord Howe Island, Australia - our accommodation was decorated in beautiful artwork including this piece - every time I look at it, it reminds me of our holiday - love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's beautiful. I have the parrot on a sofa table behind our sofa, but i wonder if the one i was sent has a flaw. There is a small dent on the back of the bird and it's hard to say if this is just an accurate copy of the original or if I was sent a defective item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A replica so real I think we relieved the original The realism of this replica is astonishing. Is the antiquities department certain the original is still secure?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not realistic enough Looks OK from afar, but up close the finish looks painted-on, not like the original. Velvet base looks cheap.
