Sandhill Cranes have a scale that one cannot ignore. These large birds are approximately 5’-4’ high and weigh around 7-11 pounds which is heavy for a bird. They are noted for pairing for life which could be 20 years or more, so in this exciting etching it was important to capture two birds at a special moment. This large etching displays the pair life size with engaging detail and color. Technically it is created with 4 separate copper plates (each weighing 25 lbs.), in addition to hand-coloring with transparent watercolors.
