Snipe

I remember my first encounter with a snipe as  a young boy.  I saw it climb to a good height before diving towards the ground at great speed and making a ‘drumming’ sound with its wings.  I later learned that this was a breeding display to attract a mate.


The initial sketch for this sculpture was done in Shetland whilst visiting a friend.  Snipe visit his garden on a daily basis.  I chose this pose for the sculpture because it is the one adopted by the snipe as she sat in the garden watching me sketch her.
