Inspired by the birds visiting his patio, Bojesen designed the Songbirds in the 1950s and named the original birds after his family members. After finding pictures of the cheerful beech birds in the family's old photo album, they were later added to the collection of Bojesen's animal figurines. The birds have a clean, modern expression, stripped of superfluous details, and yet are so lifelike that it is easy to imagine them breaking out in song as the sun rises.
Full of life and with a jovial charm, Kay Bojesen’s Swedish daughter-in-law Ruth generously shared anecdotes from her life in the Bojesen’s family. Feminine and pink to the very tips of her feathers!
