What a beautiful idea: building huge nests. And not only a few. Patrick Dougherty build over 230 of them over the last thirty years. By using thousands of sapling twigs, he builds these pieces of art all over the globe expressing his love of nature and his great carpentry skills. There will be a documentary about his work coming out soon, too, but for the time being, check out his book, Stickwork.
