Whacking Great Nests by Patrick Dougherty

"Patrick Dougherty's Incredible Nest Houses"
Somethin Wonderful (January 28, 2009)

"If hobbits didn't live under hills, they might like this homey structure that seems to fit right into its surroundings. It calls forth visions of a simpler world in keeping with nature and is one of sculptor Patrick Dougherty's 150 amazing twig art installations that have sprung up all around the world to the wonderment of passersby since 1982...."

(from Somethin Wonderful, used w/o permission)

That's the first of eight photos, showing Dougherty's sculptures. They're remarkable artworks, giving the impression of being made by some outsized nest-building creature.

I wish this post had identified where these sculptures were, and devoted more text to discussing each: but the photos are nice.
