More Wooden Figures Keeping Very Still

I have just finished another couple of wooden figures with an insect problem.

Protecting her little brother from a bee. 

Drawn to scale and marked out in wood.

Worked out final composition.

Underpainting before adding final ageing and finishing touches. 
The dark bird made the atmosphere a bit morbid, a bit heavy and oppressive on top of her head. He has joined all the weird things that have gone wrong and are now in a box in my basement.

Caroline, that bird is my cup of tea. I'd love to see into that box of other things that you think have gone wrong because he definitely works for me!
