With all this, they make a wonderful gift, certain to delight everyone.
These Ancient Redgum Birds, actually Wrens, are crafted from fossilised Redgums which are over 5,000 years old. Ancient Redgums were buried in the mud as the Murray river changed course at the end of the last Ice-Age. Over thousands of years, they became impregnated with minerals from the gravels of the river bed, transforming the timber into stunning black fossil wood. Extremely hard and dense, it polishes to a beautiful shine almost like stone. The little wrens, in tail up or tail down mode, incorporate some new Redgum for contrast, are life-size and totally endearing.
