"A thousand woodpeckers flew into the window and settled themselves on Pinocchio's nose".   — Carlo Collodi

 

Materials:

  • Apparently, a thousand woodpeckers' favorite pole.
  • Thistle blossom
  • Gemstone cabochons wrapped in 18K gold wiring
  • Dried blossoms
  • Deer moss
  • Hummingbird nest
  • Gold bugle beads
  • Assorted feathers
 

Several people contributed to this interesting work.  My daughter-in-law found the nest, my grandson Max found the beautiful thistle flower and the gold wired cabochons were once part of a necklace given to me by a Brazilian friend.  The pole itself is the mastery, if not exactly of a 1000 woodpeckers, a close enough number to it.  The collaboration resulted in a whimsical and colorful PodArt piece with an interesting tale attached to it.
