Flying Pheasant Lamp. The Ring-necked Pheasant is one of the worlds best recognized and most colorful upland game birds. These striking upland birds prefer to run when confronted by predators but if cornered they have the capability to burst upward from cover with great speed. Our stunning Flying Pheasant Lamp captures that moment when the male “Rooster” explodes from the cover of a stubble corn field where he had been feeding and sunning before being startled by an unseen predator.
Created from an original Tupelo woodcarving by Master Carver Sam Nottleman each lamp is carefully hand-cast and hand-painted to capture every detail Sam carved and his wife Lilly painted into the original masterpiece. Perfect for any home, cabin, office with an outdoor or nature decor our Flying Pheasant Lamp is sure to please even the most astute wildlife enthusiast.

Wood Sculpture Craftsmanship:
The following is the process on how the original wildlife decoys were made in which this sculpture was modeled after.
The process of creating a decoy begins with a block of tupelo wood, which is harvested from a swamp tree in Louisiana. Patterns are then drawn from real wildlife. The shaping process is completed with a carbide grinder beginning with a coarse grinder and eventually a finer tool. The wood shaping process itself takes over 100 hours per bird and the larger birds such as geese may take up to 400 hours. The detailed feather patterns are accomplished by the use of a burning pen and take up to three to four weeks per bird. The finishing colors and the detailed paint patterns are then started. Acrylic paints and brushes of all kinds ranging from a 1 inch to a 1/6 inch brush are used. An air brush is also used to blend the multiple colors to give the final product a more realistic and life-like feel. The final creation is a bird that represents the life-like qualities and characteristics of the natural bird. All sculptures are carefully carved and painted by hand, and that is why the detail is so life like.
