Hoopoe arranging its feathers

A fine quality, a nineteenth-century bronze cast of a hoopoe mounted on an elegant plinth by Alfred Dubucand (1828-1894). Rare model. Old cast in a light shade bordering on a very light yellow, being nearly the colour of the bronze metal itself. As is often the case with Dubucand the statue of the Hoopoe shows great realism in every detail and has been very finely chiselled
