These are two small wood sculptures by New Mexico artist Gary Wellman.

I bought them in Houston while playing with the opera there in 2004.
They were hanging in the gallery of the Menil Collection bookstore and
after several visits, I asked if they were for available.
Since they were, I took them right away.

Suspended on "invisible" strings, they suggest birds in flight.
While in Texas (God help me), they hung over my reed desk.
Now they hover in my bedroom.

I love them.
