Pictures alone present story making opportunities to stimulate the imagination and curiosity, to trigger awareness and to inspire.
“A picture says a thousand words”, or so old saying indicates. With this quote in mind, on offer are some images of recent work that reflects upon the ecological importance of hollow logs as habitat as well as an indicator of sustaining and creating new life .
What story do these pictures tell you? Who else might live here? Where is it? Why is it? How many things can you find? What are they? How many colours?
These are toys made from wool felt and designed for play while at the same time acting to stimulate imagination and curiosity, as well as conservation awareness.
Here is another piece that looks at fungi . It also focuses on the lesson of biodiversity and importance of logs to breakdown and act as a food source, as well as provide shelter to many tiny organisms as well as larger species. This stump is intended to encourage discussion about decomposition forests and composting. It speaks of sustainability and protecting our wildlife.
What other tales and teaching could these examples inspire? Perhaps poems? or songs ? or art? Would they motivate your family to go on a bush walk , or to take some nature photographs, or visit a museum to discover more?
Hope so and would love it if you were to share the results.
