The sculptor clearly worked out all the details with detailed modeling of the head, tail, wings, plumage, with an emphasis on maximum realism.
Porcelain titmouse, sitting on a branch with cones, conveys the image of an agile and brisk bird that adorns the snow-covered Russian landscapes and pleases with a cheerful trill since the beginning of February, creating a spring mood in the soul.
A beautiful balance of transitions of traditional colors of Gzhel - white and blue.
