I do like to play with old axe heads. This one has done tons of work before it arrived in my pile. It would be at least 50 years old maybe even 100. To then make it into something whimsical and relatively playful is a joy. I also tried overlapping plasma cut hair as a first trial on this piece. ( seems to be ok) and there was a heart on the floor which I added to the piece along with the bird. Needless to say she loves birds!
