Most decoys are created to be functional – to use on the water to lure waterfowl. The Diving Decoy, by K. William Kautz, is meant to be a true work of art. Large enough to make a statement, this graceful piece is designed especially for a mantelpiece where it can dive below the surface. The artist brings out even the smallest detail, down to the fish in its beak.
