Inspired by the birds visiting his patio, Bojesen designed the Songbirds in the 1950's and named them after his family members: Ruth, Pop, Otto, Kay, Peter and Sunshine. After finding pictures of the cheerful beech birds in the family's old photo album, Rosendahl added them to their collection of Bojesen's animal figurines in 2012. The charming birds have a clean, modern expression, stripped of superfluous details that are well suited for any contemporary home.
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!
