the journey of a nybeck sculpture
The day started with securing 6 chain hoists to the truss.
Once all hoists were in place and balanced we lifted it a few feet off the scaffolding. We removed the scaffolding and attached a few birds to the truss before it was lifted into place.
The truss is lifted with 10 birds attached.
The truss is secured to the ceiling. One by one the other 11 birds are added into the flock.
A view from the second story.
Lifting and securing the jumbo mama bird. (The largest of all the birds, with a 15 foot wing span.)
A view from the end of the day! I have been dreaming about this view for almost a year now!!
Hoisting the second to last bird into place. A productive day indeed.
What an amazing sight! They are even more beautiful “in flight”. Thanks for sharing!
