Swans have long occupied the pages of legendary stories and folklore. Now you can bring the elegance and timeless mystique of the swan into your garden with the Carolina Swan. Handcrafted from wood, this authentic-looking decorative decoy features a vintage blanc finish that enhances its traditional, antique style. This swan will make a delightful addition to your flower garden.
The detailed process of crafting this swan and others like it in the American Waterfowl Collection involves detailed carving, molding, and finishing. First, master carvers hand-carve the original American Waterfowl sculpture. Next, molds are made from the originals and then hand-cast using a variety of mediums to ensure the exact detailing of the original woodcarving. Then American folk artists from North Carolina paint them by hand to specifications using acrylic paint and stain. The artist signs and dates each piece. Finally, a protective coating is applied to ensure long-lasting resilience to the outdoor elements. The result of this detailed process is a realistic-looking swan decoy proudly made in the USA.
