It's safe to say that every science fiction and fantasy fan has at least a brief flirtation with Anne McCaffrey's "Dragonriders of Pern" novels. It's one of the longest running genre series, with just under two dozen books, and features some interesting worldbuilding. That includes the titular "dragons" and the related species of Rukbat III.
Inspired by the books, Emily Holland sculpted this recreation of a wherry, the Rukbat-analogue of Earth's crows and their relatives. She does a great job of capturing the alien nature of the creatures while drawing on terrestrial anatomical forms.
