For the next few weeks, some new images - but of other images rather than live animals. The decals are all from the walls of the Ashworth Laboratories building at the Edinburgh University campus, which was opened in 1929. The decals (or plaques) were a commission from the sculptor, Phyllis Bone. The animals were first modelled in clay and the models then cast in artificial stone to make the seventeen plaques which decorate the exterior of the building.

In response to one comment last week, I told of the family of six kookas who were local to our garden in Sydney... this was Peter having a discussion about territorial rights with one of the adjacent tribe, Sula the Strident Sulpher-crested cockatoo. They had quite the conversation!
