A finely carved solid cedar Curlew in the New England style. In a dramatic running pose with neck and bill extended as if chasing prey with the head turned approximately 30 degrees to the left. Black glass eyes, raised wings with delicate split primaries and hardwood bill splined through the head. Beautiful fine pinstripes on the head and thickly textured paint on the wings and back. Incised McNair signature on the bottom. A stunning sculptural form.
