Folly Ceiling Panel 1 of 3

The ceiling in yesterday's shelter has three etched panels providing some distraction from the view beyond. This one looks to me to be a butcher bird, although I'm sure an ornithologist will correct me if I'm wrong.

I was taken aback at first as I expected it to feature seabirds, then I thought about it, and the bush typically runs right up to the ocean in this neck of the woods, so of course it's entirely appropriate!

The pattern seems right, but the beak looks too long and thin for a butcher bird. I like the pattern though!

Overall pattern of the piece, I mean :-) It would make attractive wallpaper.

Actually I was wondering if they were stylised magpies, as I thought a butcher bird had a hooked beak...think I googled it once. Yes, just checked again! They do!

They look a little bit like they are dancing!
