Theres more information on what kind of camera took this photo that what the carving is all about.

I can understand why theres a bird but not why theres three round faces and the little door.

Absolutely brilliant ... told you Wigan was interesting.

I am guessing that the three faces are owls and the door and pillar represent a home; so the pillar is a symbol that the whole area is a habitat for wild life.

yes the faces are owls but the door is for the fairies

Nice picture though David

Well spotted Jean the map does look a pair of ladies briefs.

I was in Kings Lynn recently and they have a stainless steel sculpture of all different kings of fish and seafood hanging up, but there also a mermaids bra hanging with them its made in the shape of two shells and a piece of seaweed.
