Kookaburras and ants


I have two of these Australian Depression era metal wall plaques, cast by my grandfather. The two kookaburras decorated my grandparents' kitchen during my earliest days, and later the lounge room of their home unit in the 70s. (I remember my grandfather routing and French polishing new wooden bases for them in the 60s.) I finally got around to sanding them back and freshly varnishing them in 2000. They adorn my toilet and bathroom doors. 5th December 2009.


I needed a photo of "ants having a party" for school on Monday. Luckily I had just the props handy. 6th December 2009.
