True-to-life in every way, Taking Flight captures the sheer strength of a mallard drake at the exact moment of take off. To do justice to the quality and detail of the sculpting, Taking Flight is expertly crafted of cold-cast porcelain: note the varying textures of the duck's plumage and the rugged texture of his feet. Skilled artisans then hand paint each sculpture taking great care to match every natural color and subtle hue. The result is truly impressive, demanding the most skillful brush to re-create the iridescent green of the duck's head and the golden amber of his bill. No detail is overlooked, including the distinctive white strip around his neck.
