It takes skilled welders with 8 years of experience 3 days to create these iron sculptures. According to the auction description, “The iron is first cut to the particular shape and size, and then welded together for assembly. The welded iron is then polished until smooth and treated by a special electrophoresis powder to prevent rusting. The sculpture is then painted and jeweled to bring out the individual characteristics.”
In the end, the iron flamingo stands 23 x8 x5 inches.
A brief history of flamingos
The word “flamingo” comes from the Latin and Spanish for “fire.”
Flamingos are the national bird of the Bahamas, and the greater flamingo is the largest of the flamingo species. They can measure up to 5-feet tall, and an adult flamingo’s legs can be 30-to-50-inches long – longer than its entire body. Their nests are made of mud.
There are six flamingo species and a group of flamingos is called flamboyance. A baby flamingo is called “flaminglet.”
Flamingos are filter feeders and turn their heads upside down to eat. They get their pink color from their food.
Flamingos symbolize beauty, balance and grace, but their pink color can be used to symbolize femininity and flirtatious innocence.
According to my research online, flamingos are serially monogamous. They mate for one year, get divorced and find a new mate the next year. New mates are mutually agreed upon. Males and females both dance in search of a compatible partner.
Flamingos are more stable for long periods of time on one leg than they are on two, and according to Dr. Paul Rose, zoologist at the University of Exeter, they stand on one leg to avoid muscular fatigue. Standing on one leg also helps flamingos to preserve and regulate body temperature.
Some flamingos have lived as long as 50 years, but usually live an average of 20 to 30 years.
