'Such darling dodos ...' Sorry, Caroline, you are going to have to tell me.
PS Your word verif is suggesting I try scrying - am not going that far!

Hang on, tho' - it wouldn't be at The Mount, would it?

ChrisP said...

That's the Pallants Art Gallery in Chichester, known locally as Dodo House.

Chris is correct, it is indeed Pallant House. And you're both right about the dodo resemblance - but it's actually meant to be a different bird altogether. Any ideas?

ChrisP said...

No one really knows but it is assumed it is supposed to be an ostrich. I suspect the carver had never seen an ostrich, rather like Durer drawing a rhino he had only ever seen in pictures.

CarolineLD said...

Right again, Chris!
