Kaleidoscope Festival..'Birds of Lumos'.


 
 My favourite illumination at the Kaleidoscope Festival was the Birds of Lumos aka Rowie and her chick. The artists Amigo and Amigo have 're-imagined these rare animals, Rowi has the body of a light globe representing the egg, a beak with nostrils and wears sight enhancing goggle's - unlike most nocturnal birds Kiwis have very poor eyesight. The result is an otherworldly light sculpture that invites the audience to consider our role in restoring the health of endangered animals and the natural environment'. You can see from the children's faces in the last shot that I was not alone in finding Rowie and chick a delightful pair! Hope you had/are having a good weekend.. can you believe we are so close to Christmas again, how the heck did that come around so fast! Happy Monday, take care and stay safe...

  14. They look quite fuzzy and it appears they're into everything. Sure are colorful, though. I can see why the kiddos like them.
