Theres more information on what kind of camera took this photo that what the carving is all about.
I can understand why theres a bird but not why theres three round faces and the little door.
That's lovely. I like wood carvings.You just have to touch them don't you?
Absolutely brilliant ... told you Wigan was interesting.
I am guessing that the three faces are owls and the door and pillar represent a home; so the pillar is a symbol that the whole area is a habitat for wild life.
yes the faces are owls but the door is for the fairies

Thought that was a pair of ladies briefs as soon as the picture came up!!!...Sorry 1
Yes me too Jean I thought that they were a pair of light green knickers.
Nice picture though David
Well spotted Jean the map does look a pair of ladies briefs.
I was in Kings Lynn recently and they have a stainless steel sculpture of all different kings of fish and seafood hanging up, but there also a mermaids bra hanging with them its made in the shape of two shells and a piece of seaweed.
The things people "see"the carving is a "Heap Small Totem Pole".
