Carved as a Christmas present it now resides in a  penguin collection.
The main carving is in Jelutong, with the wings made from English Lime which is less prone to break when used for thinner exposed sections. The wings were individually carved and pinned to the body. They were left "rough-carved" to add texture and contrast. The halo was made from epoxy resin for durability.
