Birds of Chandigarh Rock Garden

These birds are perched on the boundary wall of Chandigarh’s Rock Garden. The Rock Garden is unique for the kind of art it preserves. Almost every item on display here in the garden here is made from waste but recyclable material. These birds are made from broken ceramic cutlery.

Not only birds, there are animals and human forms made of such waste materials. I will be posting more pictures from the garden in my future posts. For today’s skywatch I have these ‘cranes’.
