Tipping Point by Rikki Morley Saunders

Ricki Morley Saunder’s Tipping Point is part of the permanent collection at the Brandywine River Museum of Art in Chadds Ford, PA. The life-size bronze measures 7’ tall x 6’ long x 5’ wide and features two majestic and fearsome peacocks intertwined in mid-air battle. “I am and honored and thrilled to have Tipping Point in the Brandywine’s collection,” said Saunders. “I have lived with and observed peacocks for over 30 years. I hope my sculpture conveys the raw beauty of these magnificent creatures—with their powerful, swirling aerobatic maneuvers and intense exploitation of feathers—that depicts a fleeting moment when the outcome of their impassioned encounter is still unknown.”
