McKenzie has added bird products by Shane Smith to our ever growing line.


Flying Series: These forms are designed to accommodate a wide range of poses that emulate flight and allow free movement of the wings and legs. The shoulder area has a point to "pin" the flight web in place. This also allows the scapulars to lay flat. The leg attachment implements the use of the full "hip" anatomy enabling free range to tuck the feet or expose them for variable expressions. These uniquely shaped designs require less guess work and minimal fill due to their shape. A deep neck slot allow for free neck movement as well.


Standing Series: The standing design allow the use of the full ball joint on the wing which is important for not only wing placement, but for the freedom to align the side pocket and scapulars. the deeper chest, narrow hips and full leg rotation will allow for more freedom and flexibility. Both series work nicely for hanging bird mounts as well.


It is much easier to see the benefits of these bird mannikins in action than from a still photograph or description. Shane introduces his bird body line and explains some of the features and benefits in our Using Shane Smith Bird Bodies Online Videos.
