I once saw a documentary on the artist-disguised-as-a-bird known as the bowerbird. I was floored by their amazing interior design work. Their nests..or bowers…are full of beautiful colors and complex shapes. Honestly, they are works of art.
Today as I was paging through the July issue of National Geographic and ran across a story on bowerbirds. While looking at the photos of some of the incredibly beautiful and intricate nests I was reminded of the equally as beautiful and intricate work of environmental sculptor Andrew Goldsworthy. The similarity between some of the bird’s structures and Goldsworthy’s pieces is really uncanny.
Below is a mix of bowerbird and Goldsworthy pieces….
