Northern Pintail Hen
The Pintail species is normally carved showing a substantial portion of the long, graceful neck.
In this design the Pintail Hen is shown in a very relaxed position with virtually no neck showing.
An added feature is the largely exposed wing that adds a nice focal point to the design.
The original carving made from this pattern was judged Best in Category in the Decorative Smoothie Champion class at the Ward World Championship 2016.
An 8 image Photo Packet is available for this pattern.
