A new sculpture is flying high in Sheffield’s Millennium Gallery.

‘Penelope’ is the striking centrepiece of The Illustrated Aviary, an exhibition celebrating the beauty and diversity of birds.

She has been created by artist Mr Finch and provides a contemporary counterpoint to a collection of rarely-seen 18th and 19th century bird illustrations.
