'Eclipse' of Exeter has a sculpture as part of a window display. Different
sculptures will be displayed over time.
Shown on the left in a garden setting she is leaning against a bird table.
These sculptures are much favored by wildlife as birds feel safe and

Sculptures can be placed in
any location; kneeling or
climbing walls the
posibilities are limitless.
