I made this in a recent swap for subject Curiosity Cabinet. I live in a converted dairy barn with massive attic space. Found several bird skeletons up there and took one apart (after much washing of course) and reassembled to make this odd creature. Oy, it was a blast!

It has a little stand in the back. The actual box is a playing card holder. It was old and smelled like it so I had to put it in a box with baking soda for ten days!

I love this. It really looks like something from one of those old Victorian collections.

I think I must have somehow missed this in the galaxy?? Very cool use of those bird bones! (and I love that you live in a converted dairy barn.). Wink

Just wonderful!  Perhaps someday I will reassemble the bones we find around here into some magical creature since you have inspired me!
