Vacant Possession

By chase
Another of the skeletal bird I found a while ago.
The fabulous 'vacant' sign I spotted on my travels,it has a small slider & guess what it says on the covered bit....yep 'engaged'...wicked !! Wink
The bird cage is part of my ever growing collection of 'stuff'.
Taken in daylight,finished in Photoshop.
Took me a while to get the feet to somehow perch on the sign,I did break off one of his nails but it was soon fixed with a drop of superglue Wink
Balancing the feathers to form some kind of body shape was a nightmare,especially after I had used the glue for a quick repair job...feathers stick to fingers very easily Blush
He is still dangling by fishing line from my cupboard,which made breathing difficult as any slight movement from me & off he went in a bit of a spin Sad

Thanks for taking the time to look/comment.

Brilliant! He's so animated. I think I recognise the bg Wink and have huge admiration for your skill and patience in working on those feathers. It must have been so finicky. Best wishes, Fiona

Fine work and thought process throughout...

Delightfully contrived, if a tad spooky in content.

As a complete numpty with still life myself, this wins my entire admiration!

Sorry missed this Janet, wicked sign Wink. Now the whole series makes sense I think Sad ( saw this after making a comment on the last in the series)
