Three ducks raising from the rushes. The ducks are in various stages and levels of flight. The highest point, 9 feet. The left duck has full open wings coming out of cat tails. The other two ducks are in graduated positions of flight; lifting off from the marsh setting. This bronze scene is mounted on a granite base with commemorative plaque. The sculpture is displayed in a garden setting planted with plume grasses.
The subject matter was chosen because the person it was dedicated to was a duck hunter and loved the out-of-doors.
