Our blue and orange kingfisher might appear out of place during the drab winter months but he is a flash of brilliance on a dull day. A brook runs past my workshop so I am occasionally rewarded with a glimpse of this remarkable fisherman. It is the first time I have attempted to carve a kingfisher.
The lid is inscribed with the bird’s Latin name Alcedo atthis along with ‘Lenka’. This refers to my new favourite singer whose music I played non-stop whilst carving this piece. Also on the box is ‘Alcyone and Ceyx’ – in Greek mythology they were husband and wife and were turned into kingfishers. The phrase Halcyon Days comes from this myth.
The interior shows a fish holding a gun to ensure he is not the next Fish Supper!
