Form and Function

On its own, this solitary bronze sculpture is a show stopper in an inconspicuous dirt path in the Cawdor Castle walled garden.


When you get up a close to Orchid Tree bird feeder you notice it’s not just a decorative addition to the walled garden, it’s performing an important role in the ecosystem as well.  Scottish artist Illona Morris, must have been inspired by the many birds who take refuge at Cawdor Castle, and designed cup like pedals to hold bird seed. Below you can see a finch having a snack in one of the leaves.
