Alouette Beach Resort Sign

ALOUETTE is French for ‘lark’ or ‘skylark’. It is most well known in the French Canadian children’s song, ‘Alouette, gentile alouette’, where the bird is plucked apart piece by piece (presumably in revenge for waking someone up too early in the morning?) and is often sung to teach students the names of the parts of the body in French. Actually, the lark has a beautiful, flute-like call, and has been written and sung about in many songs and poems. For example, in John McCrae’s ‘In Flanders Fields’…’The larks, still bravely singing, fly, scarce heard amid the guns below…’ It is also the name of a form of poetry – perhaps because of the musical quality of these poems, which consist of at least two stanzas of six short lines each with a set rhyme and meter.

It wold be interesting to hear the story behind the name of this beach house sign, but the smooth sculpted birds fit well. The sign was designed using our sign designer website, where the customer was the designer, and chose from a myriad of options in the way of shapes, colors, artwork, text style, size, etc. They were able to see the price live as they configured their design, so there were no surprises at the end. Made of high density urethane, the sign has the look and feel of wood, yet will outlast wood for years to come, with not rotting, splitting or warping, even by the Maine beach where it was headed.
