I see a Lute or some other instrument in this lovely half gourd. Some pyrographer may see something else. Halved and backed with wood, this bird house hugs a flat surface. Suitable for indoors or out. The opening is 1 3/4 inches wide. It has been loosely primed on the back and left natural for you to finish on front. It is 16" long and 8 1/2" at the widest point. There is a drainage hole in the bottom with netting over it.
