This hen reminds me of back on the farm the hen wouldn't lay her eggs in the nest, you needed to hunt all over for that egg.This hen is 8 inches by 10 inches by 3/4 inch and is carved out of jelutung. This wood carves very nice with hand tools and has a nice finish. This is a fun project with the different leaves and scrolls. It can be hung on the wall or stand alone. The finish is a brown madder oil paint wash and when dried was sprayed with Deft.
