ã1999 by Ross Matteson bronze 7 x 4 x 5 inches edition size 50
Quail Call was the awaited complement to the 1996 bronze titled Pre-dawn Quail. California quail are one of the handsome birds that I am particularly attracted to as subject matter for sculpture. I'm not drawn to sculpting a wide diversity of species. My emphasis is on the careful and informed use of pose -- hopefully in a way that will be meaningful to humanity. My time observing both people and birds has become important to achieving this goal.
