Last week I made up a new acrylic Swallow flock as a commission piece for a friends wall. She lives out of Wellington and I can’t do the install for a few weeks, so in the meantime they needed a home that will both keep them safe during transport and has the option of display if she so wishes. So here they are boxed up :
I like the way the drawers pull out like a specimen case, displaying the birds set inside on their pins they way butterflies and beetles used to be. If they are completely pulled out and placed on their sides they also create individual shadow boxes. Will post up pics of the whole set after they’re installed – Can’t wait to see them up on the wall!
