Archipelago Avocet Fishing Bird Wooden Sculpture
A truly beautiful bird the Archipelago Avocet Fishing Bird Wooden Sculpture on log with fish will make a charming gift and possibly addition to other Archipelago birds you may have collected. Archipelago Avocet Fishing Bird are distinctively-patterned black and white waders with a long up-curved beak. It is the emblem of the RSPB and symbolizes the bird protection movement in the UK more than any other species. It’s return in the 1940’s and subsequent increase in numbers represents one of the most successful conservation and protection projects. On a lovely piece of driftwood this is a real characterful wooden sculpture.

Avant Garden has been selling Archipelago Wooden Birds, Fish and associated Sculptures for 16 years when Nick first opened the doors of Avant Garden on March 17th 2000. Nick has always been very keen on wildlife in general and so to see the range at Archipelago, was a must for him to sell them in the shop.
Archipelago has a very strong ethic which has helped to make the brand very strong. The product portfolio has changed over the years to accommodate new exciting Sculptures, but with the quality of each item being so high and the care and attention given by the Sculptors being so incredibly accurate, they go from strength to strength.

Archipelago has always been a strong supporter of Fair Trading and has built up and kept very good long term lasting relationships with all of the Carvers and Sculptors and the standards of the Fair Trade Policy is always monitored. From when the first sketches are drawn up, photos of real birds and fish etc. are taken, to the creation and then to the final product the design team at Archipelago work directly with the skilled Carvers and Sculptors to bring you a piece of art that is unrivalled in the market place.
Because these Birds and Fish are Fair Traded it also means that the numbers are always limited, so you will never see Archipelago Sculptures mass produced and in the big stores. Thus keeping them an exclusive and beautiful Collection.
Archipelago has now grown to be a Design Label, recognized now for both interiors and exteriors with the addition of the new Metal Birds. Click here for the full range of Archipelago Metal Birds
