Carved from sustainable bamboo root and acacia wood, supriyanto in Java creates the whimsical bird, combining the natural wood grain with a distressed finish in this delightful original sculpture. Ducks play a vital role in the ecology of wet-rice agriculture in Java as in Bali. The ducks are herded into the fields well prior to harvest time to eat algae and insect pests, as well as fertilize the fields with their droppings. It is important to keep them away from ripening fields though, so that they do not eat the rice itself!
