Chris Gamble’s clever and witty artwork, “Homing In”, is a flying owl made out of ladies nylon stockings. That should ruffle some feathers!

‘Inspired by Birds’, the fourth Norwich Castle Open Art Show, runs in parallel with the ‘The Wonder of Birds’ exhibition at Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery.
