Continuing a little series from Beamish. I wonder if anyone can identify the subject?
For those who have visited the place, I have included a clue...
Thanks for looking,
Moira

I've not been there Moira.

The bottom bit looks like pieces of cane although I could be wrong?

Interesting, whatever it is?Smile

The grid in the background could be a pit cage (for going up and down a mine shaft). That doesn't help with the curved cane items in the foreground. Great colours.

Is it part of your cane collection from your teaching days, with the blood stains cloned out?
And is the wire a part of the cage they kept you in between classes? Smile

Gorgeous rich colours, Moira, I thought it might be a piece of cane furniture too, but as usual, wrong Sad Carol

Well, Moira, when I first looked at the thumbnail, I saw a couple of ripening bananas propped up against some wire netting! Grin I still see the same viewing it large, but obviously it isn't and can't guess the correct answer! Wink

All the above sound possible or could it be an old wooden wheel. Wire spokes. Well captured anyway.

Not a clue, but it is a fantastic abstract. I like the warmth of the cane contrasting with the bleakness of the wire. My best guess would be an old animal carrier or cage.

Hooplas used by children for playing?
An instrument of torture? Smile

Other than that, haven't the foggiest! But I do like your image of whatever it is Smile

Many thanks to Joline for her UA, a lovely surprise to come home to! I have some work to catch up with, I'll be back here properly later.

Bill was the teacher, not I - although I do spend a lot of time in schools now. I worked in taxation, which could equally be placed in the realms of torture I suppose...
