Birds can be an invitation to fly wild and free, or they can be a symbol of cozy nests and cheerful, early morning songs. Flocks of geese winging their way across the sky remind us of seasonal change and a journey to follow warm weather and the sun.
Characteristics of Ornamental Metal
Metal is an enduring substance that can be shaped into almost anything. It can be imbued with added color or it can be displayed in its own natural tones. Dark metals can be displayed against white or light-colored walls, while light or shiny metal works well against dark walls, such as mahogany paneling. Most metals are a naturally heavy substance, yet birds can be formed using metals.
Combining Birds and Metal
Bird forms made of metal are enduring. There is something fanciful about creating a shape so fleeting and fragile as a bird into something as heavy and unmoving as metal. Even aluminum has greater weight than the fragile hollow bones and feathers that characterize most birds.
There’s a delicious irony in using metal sculptures to depict the wild, free flight of birds and a little use of optical illusion can be applied to emphasize three-dimensional effects on flat surfaces. An even more charming use of metal birds, however, is to suspend them on wires from your ceiling or from trees out of doors. Displayed in this way they can appear to be flying, just as do their counterparts, the wild birds that are so fragile yet so crucial to our ecosystem. Below you will find ten metal bird wall décor options. These birds will not fly away with the seasons. They will fly from your wall, ceiling, tree or fence in perpetuity or until you tire of them. They combine the durability of metal and the wild, free feeling you get when you watch a flock of geese flying overhead. With these metal birds, however, you will not have to wait for autumn or spring to see them winging their way through your spaces.
