7 foot assemblage ostrich I had a lot of fun making!!!  I cut off the legs of the metal yard crane in my back yard and added them to the legs of a beautiful antique table I had (and destroyed) to make my ostriches long legs.  The other two legs from the antique table were perfect for my ostrich's arms where I attached mannequin hands, holding a cigarette holder. Her skirt and bustier were made from two vintage metal lamp shades I found in a consignment shop and her head was originally from a taxidermy shop!!  LOVE HER!!!!
