Royal Tern Mating Ritual - Original Oil Painting on Gold Leaf

Barbara Fallenbaum

Royal Terns mate for life.  Sometimes this does not result with offspring, but they do not split up. However they still preform their mating routine .   During the court ship rituals they will display high stepping “Happy Feet” dancing.  Their neck is extended and slightly back and bends the wings out like a skirt.  It’s fun to watch them!

  • The painting measures 12” x 16”, with frame 13.25" x 17.25"  x 2" deep.  
  • The frame is solid wood and custom for this painting.  We finish each one with an undercoated metallic glaze and a nice cream crackle top coat, giving an elegant coastal feel.  Each frame is a unique piece of art by itself!
