A Creative Australian Built a Giant Laughing Kookaburra While In Quarantine
This Australian dad has really topped us all as far as creativity during self-isolation.
While trying to stay productive, Dr. Farvardin Daliri has built a giant, laughing kookaburra in his own backyard.
The native bird, which measures a whopping 8.5 metres from beak to tail and stands at 4.5 metres tall was built for the Townsville Cultural Festival in Queensland, which he established 26 years ago.
If you're wondering just how Dr Daliri constructed this incredible structure, he started working on it in February and used hundreds of steel round bars that were then melded and interlocked together, creating the shape of a kookaburra.
He also has a Master of Fine Arts, specializing in ceramics and sculpting, which helped him figure out the technical elements needed to make the sculpture.
He then took it out for a test drive and his daughter shared the video on twitter.
