This bird is inspiring with the view into its bloody, beating heart. I bought it when it first came out to give as a gift to my mentor for his 80th birthday. Then, feeling its absence from our collection of 20, i searched for years until i found another for sale.
I wrote a play entitled “Red Winged Blackbird” that was on stage in Berkeley California for 3 weeks a year ago. and nominated for 6 Bay Area Theater Critics Awards. The idea of letting go—giving away something you love so dearly is a great gift—
is a major theme . Alyosha Zim
PS i would consider buying another if it comes available!
