Feed the Birds
Written by: Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman
Early each day to the steps of Saint Paul's
The little old bird woman comes.
In her own special way to the people she calls,
"Come, buy my bags full of crumbs.

Come feed the little birds, show them you care
And you'll be glad if you do.
Their young ones are hungry,
Their nests are so bare;
All it takes is tuppence from you."

Feed the birds, tuppence a bag,
Tuppence, tuppence, tuppence a bag.
"Feed the birds," that's what she cries,
While overhead, her birds fill the skies.

All around the cathedral the saints and apostles
Look down as she sells her wares.
Although you can't see it, you know they are smiling
Each time someone shows that he cares.

Though her words are simple and few,
Listen, listen, she's calling to you:
"Feed the birds, tuppence a bag,
Tuppence, tuppence, tuppence a bag."

This wonderful sculpture is a collaborative effort.
Both artists are currently able to be seen on ebay and at their respective websites.
Antoine-- of Faeries From The Swamp, and Marigold--from Marigold's place came up with this amazing sculpture.
Antoine, known for her whimsical faeries on ebay, had a notion after looking at one of
Marigold's adorable hummingbirds, and called her out of the blue, to ask her to make pigeons!  
Marigold readily agreed, and by the next evening had 15 of these cuties made and ready for the post!

Made of 100% polymer clay, these little pigeons are hand sculpted one of a kind (OOAK) originals by Marigold Ford  Check for her auctions on ebay!
Hand sculpted of polymer clay over a wire armature for added durability, and adorned with various types of fabric attire, this little old lady is a one of a kind (OOAK) original piece of art by Antoine.

The entire sculpture is about 7 1/2" tall from the bottom of the base (7" x 10") to the top of the bird on her hat.
The base is solid pine painted in acrylics.  The grass is "reindeer grass" applied with glue.  The sidewalk is polymer clay.
Her bag is also of polymer clay, and is removable.  She is removable from the park bench, and the park bench is removable from the base.

  ALL of the birds are permanently attached with a flexible glue
that allows for a tiny bit of movement.  Her hat is also removable!

The little old lady is a full sculpt art doll, with natural undyed tibetian/tibetan mohair on her head.  her hat is made of cotton felt, and was hand sewn by Antoine.  The park bench is made of wood, and was bought at a garage sale!!

Her facial features were hand painted with acrylics, and sealed with a high gloss sealant to make her appear more natural.
Each wrinkle and line gives character to her face, and carries with it a memory and experience she had.
