Dalston birds dine with Botticelli

Touch of Italian Renaissance in an E8 giardino

EVEN THE CREATION of a bird table in Dalston raises style issues.
This masterpiece in Greenwood Road refers directly to the Sandro Botticelli oil painting known as The Birth of Venus.
The table’s creator, an art lecturer, made it from old stuff lying about his home, including a statue bought from a charity shop.
