I was mowing our jungly lawn, and saw this glimmer in the spidery grass.
Lo! A lost treasure...
A silver bird. fair condition.
I had completely forgotten about this- I think I must have left it outside as an experiment in natural patination- but I dont remember...maybe it got mixed up in the kid's toys? I must have mown over it several times over the months. I guess I'll never get a job as a conservator.
Looks particularly troglodytic in contrast to the jizai okimono, doesnt it?- but... that was my original intention!
