A bronze pelican in flight, this bronze is part of a limited edition by Smith, one of the country's leading sculptors of birds. The work represents the brown pelican, a master fisherman with a ten-foot wingspan. Brown pelicans can dive into the water at 60 miles per hour, emerging with their lower bills filled with fish. These gentle birds have come to symbolize peace and good luck.
