Traditional bird cages with a difference April 13, 2008

Posted by asianpixmen in Miscellaneous.

If I am not mistaken, these are bird traps rather than bird cages. The kampung folks in the rural areas are quite ingenius and terribly creative. Those birds that are highly prized for the sweet tunes are the Merbok.

Even though, there are now few hand-crafted bird cages available, those above are made and designed to trap the Merbok. It takes a long time to make one and definitely a long of patience.

You will really have to see one to appreciate the work that goes into making one of these.
