This piece is a recycling of a piece I made years ago. The two hands were coming out of a toaster and looked quite spooky.. such that no one liked it. When it was returned to me from a gallery recently, I decided the hands were lovely but there was no real message. I hence made a bird as a thing for them to release( as I often do as birds sometimes get themselves inside my shed.) I had seen a piece earlier of a butterfly being released by a pair of chained hands and no doubt that had an effect on my composition. Still I do like the message it sends about setting free something that belongs to the wild.
