Bird Henge to happen

Good news. We were offered a grant today from the Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Beauty to cover some of the costs of building a Bird Henge near Stonehenge on Anthony's land as part of the Scraptors Sculpturemad Garden  so we can now go ahead. This will be next to a public path and visible 24/7.  There will be giant Wiltshire birds including the Great Bustard, the world's heaviest flying bird, which has been reintroduced into the county.

Surf Skate Bristol

Perhaps thanks to the Banksy effect Bristol has a wacky side. This is the Surf Skate shop near   the Bristol Museum where you can see for the first time in 150 years the remains of an Ancient Roman mosaic of Orpheus and animals. See below.

Helicopter morphs as a dragonfly and a duck near Stonehenge

 Charlotte Moreton led a guided tour of the sculptures  she created with apprentices of Qinetiq near Stonehenge between 2007 and 2013. This stripped out helicopter became a dragon fly. Unintentionally it also looks like a duck. Below a life sized horse made with powder coated steel and bent steel tubing. And bottom a giant mallow. The nosecone of a Beagle Bulldog plane is its centre.You can see the dragon fly as you drive towards Stonehenge from London.
