BIRD BOMB

This work is created from the remains of a blackbird I found while walking The Peddars Way in Norfolk.  It had been eaten by a raptor, probably a sparrow hawk.  When I reconstructed it as a M67 grenade I was thinking about how human activity is destroying the habitats of birds and the need to treat all species as sentient beings.
