I've been banging away at this for a long time off and on. It just needs to be oiled out in a week or so then varnished in about 6 months. I like it.
The idea came from reading how the Victorians would hang their game for a long time until the leg fell off. Then they'd cook and eat. ICK. I shot this bird and hung it in my old tractor barn made up of used lumber. The idea of hanging until the leg falls off is sort of a way of telling time. It was a coincidence that the old wreath frame was behind it. I had to name it Barn Clock.
