Steve Morvell Australian Wildlife Artist Masked weaver Pastel painting drawing
'After the rains - Masked weaver'
Pastel - drawing on Supertooth paper
32 x 46cm
Price: $2000
This male Masked weaver is from South Africa ....after a couple of good days rain(and resultant insect food hatching) all the male weavers in the area began frantically building nests in the often vain hope that a female will be impressed enough to want to mate with them. A male may have to build five or more nests before she finds one acceptable for egg raising.....wow....what a job!!! Don't think I could handle the pressure...lol
