A House Finch on a flowered pedestal. This is my first attempt at creating a model for 3D printing. I took several pictures of a House Finch feeding at my bird feeder and wanted to sculpture him on some type of natural background. I've noticed several of the smaller birds resting in the rock roses so I placed him on a rock rose bush with some of the natural flowers and ground cover that grows in my yard. Three of the rock rose flower buds and a snail are sculpted extending out of the bush. The bush gently cradles the bird surrounding his body and supporting him - his feet are inside the bush as the bush is inside the ground as all things are contained within and support all things. This is a piece I designed as a gift for my mom who has the first piece ever made.
