Strange Bird

1945 (fabricated c. 1988)
In 1972, Arne Ekstrom suggested that a show be held of many replicas of the same sculpture. Strange Bird was selected for this clever demonstration. There were six bronzes cast and two reproductions in aluminum. One of them is here along with the original one of green slate.
