Trapped Bird

by sarahartonsherkin


‘Tied Down’ – a small paper bird is hanging on a thread and when flipped upside down it looks as though it is tethered to the rocks and trying to fly away


In the Museum of Miniatures i put a tiny paper bird on a thread and hung it in an oyster shell. When i put it outside and filmed it fluttering in the wind i thought of a bird being ‘trapped’ and how many birds live their lives in cages.


I would also consider this a metaphor for feeling trapped and helpless.

May all beings be happy, wild and free.
