Easter isn’t only about chocolate and Easter eggs. It’s also about the dawn of spring and new beginnings. One thing everyone loves about this time of year is the sweet sounds of birds chirping. Anden has created an alternative Easter gift that pays homage to a bird’s call by creating Iroko and Maple wood bird sculptures that, when twisted, let out a lively tune. The birds are handmade in England and you can choose between a dark Iroko top or lighter Maple top.
