This offering is sold.
Quiet marshy waters find Lewis Malie's egret or heron family exchanging affection with their long beaks. All three water creatures have tiny eyes from inlaid jet and the loveliest of plumage. These elegant birds are a symbol of purity, balance and longevity. About 1 3/4" tall, 1" wide and 1" deep, surprisingly carved from one piece of rich fossilized ivory.
