Description

This wooden bird box was created by Cameo Alpacas and Garden Art, a company run by Pearl Anderson and Elod Gunther and based in Woodbridge in southern Tasmania. The bird box is a recreation of a medieval castle, complete with corner towers with crenelated parapets, with the walls between the towers also having crenellation. The pointed arch entrance to the castle includes a possible representation of a bridge or drawbridge, which the bird could sit on. The photograph was taken at the Tasmanian Craft fair held in the town of Deloraine.
