Birds of China is a celebration of life; a riot of colour and a moment to reflect on the beauty of the world we live in and to remember the responsibility we have to the environment.


The tree works as a framework, adorned with a multitude of birds from all over the country, including red tailed kites, cockatoos, herons, cranes, hoopees, kingfishers, ducks and cockerals.

The composition of the tree references old Chinese masters such as Zhu Da and Qi Baishi, following in the long tradition of Chinese landscape painting.
