Lovebirds are true to their name, they mate for life and are strongly bonded, sitting side by side. These colorful and full of personality birds belong to the parrot family. Bryson Bobelu's carved a marvelous pair of lovebirds from one piece of lovely Archaen butterstone. He then overlaid turquoise wing accents. Each devoted feathered friend has turquoise inlaid eyes as well. Together they measure approximately 1 3/4" long, 1 1/2" wide and 1 1/4" tall.
