This delightful carving of a pair of ducks was used to secure overstuffed luggage in Nepal. It is shaped as two ducks in mirror images of each other with large oval eyes and long exaggerated beaks with horizontal striations. The feathers are fancifully carved in rounded rows with individual feathers fanned our within curved segments lining their bodies. The carving hands from a specially fashioned metal stand.
