Flamingos Wall Decor Group Of Five (m7003)

The name ‘flamingo’ comes from the Portuguese or Spanish ‘flamengo,’ which means ‘flame-colored.’ Born gray in hues, flamingos get their flamboyant color from brine shrimp that make up most of their diet. Flamingos are very social animals and the artist depicts this by creating a group of five birds wading through the calm water enjoying a warm day. The artist takes time in pressing the metal creating texture in the wings and body, and also uses metallic paints to highlight the famous colors of one of the most recognizable birds on the planet.

The basic frame of this piece is created using tin, which is powder coated with a black finish. The frame is reinforced using tin wire along the inner edge. The front of the body is adorned with capiz. Capiz is an oyster shell and the primary purpose of the oyster is as a source of food. However, the by-product, the shell, can be used for decoration. Due to it being a natural material, the natural colors of the capiz may come through as tans and browns underneath the hand-painted surface.
