This is a Macaw parrot. He started out with a newspaper body, coat hanger legs, and a foil beak. He was slowly covered with paper clay(home made). My Mom said she always wanted to have a parrot. So, I made this one for her on Mother's Day. He sits on her fireplace mantel. The last photo is of the parrot and his little brother the Atlantic Puffin, both are finished to life size.
