Fill your home with the beauty of this exquisitely detailed & stunningly beautiful hand-made bird miniature from the western state of Rajasthan, India.
This image was painted by famous Jaipur wild life miniature artist, Mr. Narendra Katara.

The ivory-billed woodpecker is one of the largest woodpeckers in the world in wingspan. It is native to the virgin forests of the Southeastern United States (along with a separate subspecies native to Cuba). Because of habitat destruction and, to a lesser extent, hunting, its numbers have dwindled to the point where whether any remain is uncertain, though reports have indicated it has been seen again in the current century. Almost no forests today can maintain an ivory-billed woodpecker population. The species is listed as critically endangered and possibly extinct. The American Birding Association lists the ivory-billed woodpecker as a class 6 species, a category it defines as “definitely or probably extinct”.
