THINGS WITH WINGS


For the amateur ornithologist in us all!  Yes, there are no Kagus or Rhynochetos jubatus for those of you more inclined to Latin namesBut there are things from many different cultures and eras of great beauty...and yes, some are angels and some are butterflies...but they are all things with wings!   Make sure to check out the amazing Kingfisher feathers in the Chinese hair ornaments.  Yes, those are real feathers, not enamel.  Gorge!
