This mysterious looking bird depicts a fantasy species of poisonous duck called ‘Melanitta Scorpionis’ , also known as Scorpion Duck. It’s main characteristic is its feathered ‘mammal like tail’ with a spur at the end of it which releases a very strong poison, normally used as a bait to capture fish.
It is about 4 inches high, decoupaged with pieces of magazine paper and varnished.
*Inside this figure there is a small pebble to give it some weight.
