Holy Grail -- Spectacled Eiders (Somateria fischeri)
Newmyer is continually employing sculptural vegetation as a symbol of strength.   The sculptural hen is a representation of nurture.  She looks up to the pair of Eiders in their minimal surroundings.  Newmyer has placed this sparse setting in contrast to its base.

Eight-time World Champion bird taxidermist and wildlife designer Frank Newmyer of Michigan virtually invented the genre of artistic waterfowl mounts in elegant habitat cases. We are pleased to offer this gallery of bird specimens from around the world. Many of these mounted specimens are also available for legal purchase through Wildlife Designer in accordance with US Federal laws. Click here for purchasing information.
