Hans Bølling created Discus in 1961. The birds are shaped as a discus and are made in hand painted pinewood. The painted parts represent the colorful plumage of the bird, whereas the chest of the bird remains unpainted; revealing the natural qualities of the wood. The beautiful veins of the wood contrast the painted parts of the birds. The birds come in a family consisting of four members that can be placed in line in the window or on a shelf.
