From the Pīwakawaka Series by Rose Petterson,
this is a flying fantail.
It is titled Pīwakawaka No.4 and signed by the artist.
Buy it unmounted and install outside or inside, by hanging from nylon (or similar).
See photos for installation ideas.
Or buy it pre-mounted on a piece of wire ready to pop in a nice jar or vase displayed on your shelf.
It is 3D printed in a UV resistant PLA plastic.
If requiring mounting please expect an extra 5-6 business days
Pīwakawaka No. 4
Take some nylon string (included) and tie it to at least two points on the fantail and then secure it to your chosen tree or other place of installation. See photos for installation ideas
If already mounted on a piece of wire, place in a weighted jar/vase and display on a bench or shelf.
PLA is a medium brittle plastic, so be careful not to apply too much force to areas like the legs and wings or it will snap. However, you could try using super glue to repair any breakages or return to the artist for plastic welding repair.
PLA plastic has a melting point of around 160 degrees celsius. If it is in a hot environment like a conservatory, it may start to droop over time.
The plastic is UV resistant so shouldn't yellow in the sun.
If your bird is placed in a tree in areas of high wind be aware that surrounding branches may hit it and cause breakages.
