Project Fichaed Eun – which in the Gaelic means 20 birds, was based on an Old Persian story called The Simurgh (meaning 30 birds in Farsi)
Produced on the beautiful Isle of Barra it was created working with Children and their Families from across the Southern Western Isles.
Each child was tasked to complete one bird section which were later interlocked together. The final artwork becomes one Giant bird made up of 20 smaller birds and features a magnificent range of found and personal objects collaged together and set in resin. It was created in collaboration with Ruth Harrison and Philip Knight.
Fichaed Eun now decorates the luggage conveyor belt at Benbecula Airport in the Outer Hebrides!
