Occellated turkey griffin by Reptangle Occellated turkey griffin by Reptangle
I don't often paint griffins with metallic colors, but Occellated turkeys are gorgeous, so I tried that theme on this guy.
He was auctioned on Ebay.

This is a gypsum reproduction of my original sculpture, produced by Windstone editions.[link]
He is about 8 1/2 inches tall.

I was so excited when I found this in the #occellated turkey tag on Tumblr, you have no idea! Galliforms have always had a special place in my heart. Gorgeous, gorgeous birds, incredibly interesting from a biological POV and every chicken (and, unfortunately, a capercaillie) I’ve known have had distinct personalities, for better or worse.

In any case, out of all of the birds in this order, the occellated turkey is one of the most striking, and I finally found a piece of art that does it justice. Thank you so much for this! It's very lovely.

W-O-W this has to be the most beautiful Windstone I have ever seen!! My absolute favorite. I wish these were a limited edition color to buy in the Windstone store!!

Thank you! I like this one a lot too.
The detailing on the feathers takes too long to paint for this design to be painted as an edition, unless we charged a fortune for it!... or simplified the pattern. I try to keep the editions of things somewhat reasonable in price.
Hey I just realized he is the colors of a metallic June beetle!
