Fill your home with the beauty of this exquisitely detailed & stunningly beautiful hand-made bird miniature from the western state of Rajasthan, India.
The Red Wattled Lapwing bird is found all over the Indian subcontinent. It is also found in Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Myanmar and parts of West & South Asia. The boldly patterned red-wattled lapwing is named for the vivid red, fleshy, wrinkled skin, or wattle, in front of each eye. A noisy bird, the red-wattled lapwing utters its loud cry both during flight and when on the ground. The call is a series of loud, shrill notes, expressed well by the words ‘did-he-do-it pity-to-do-it.
In parts of India, a local belief is that the bird sleeps on its back with the legs upwards and an associated Hindi metaphor Tithiri se asman thama jayega ("can the pee-wit support the heavens?") is used when referring to persons undertaking tasks beyond their ability or strength.
