We love animals to a fault, so it makes us sad sometimes to admit that they can be nuisances. Pigeons are often in the nuisance category of animal, with their scavenging, bedraggled urban ways, so it's nice to be able to welcome into our home, on our terms, the likeness of an animal we feel bad about disparaging.
The vase, by San Francisco artist J. Mendicino, comes in two sizes: 4 inches and 6 inches high. The pigeon features are much softened by the rounded, slightly penguin-like pose and shape, and the presence of flowers.
