Have you noticed the three spirals are all arranged properly around it?
Two are mirror images, (nearly) on either side of the front of the beak, while the one down the back is almost straight up and down.
Are you aware that it is also much much bigger than any beaked vase ever made at wfs?
Cheers, Sue (M)

Hi Sue,
Yes as you say the detail is mind blowing and a great deal of skill has gone into the piece and yes it is much bigger than the ones produced at wfs.
Im so pleased I can now enjoy looking at it each day on my window.

The amethyst swirls are nice too - especially the one around the beak. :)
