Birds and other creatures


I am still trying to figure out why I like birds so much.  In Athens almost every balcony had at least one caged bird amongst the pots of basil and geraniums. Flight and song are symbols of freedom and expression. Cages and borders are symbols of limits and restrain. Add the beauty of ornament, the narrative of symbols and you get a great recipe for a “greek tragedy”.  Now, living in rural Somerset I get to enjoy lots of garden and wildlife birds giving me the opportunity to explore my fascination further.

I am on occasion captivated by other creatures and what they have got to say about the human conditions and I will be showing some of those here too.
