“So real it looks alive!” is the best way to describe Dan McQuestion’s sculptures. The first time I viewed his art I assumed he was a taxidermist as each piece in the gallery appeared so real and in perfect dimension to a live bird existing in the wild. I was surprised to find they were sculptures created out of aluminum!
As you will see from viewing his sculptures below, he has a talent few have in the world today. Using a metal sculpture technique he invented, Daniel has currently sculpted birds representing over 250 species from six continents…all life size. His accomplishments include rare birds such as the Ivory-billed Woodpeckers and a mated pair of Juan Fernandez Fire-crowned Hummingbirds with a full compliment of individually cut feathers.
