ARTISTIC -- SMALL TOWN MAILBOX



Earlier this year I posted some unusual mailboxes that I had taken photos of out in the country. The above mailbox was recently found in a small town in Kentucky. It is rather unique for a couple reasons.

One, is that is was painted by a family member of the owner of the mailbox. And two, the painter is a well known artist in Kentucky by the name of David Farmer.

The truly unusual part of the painting is that the flag appears to be part of the bird house painted on the box. However, when the flag is raised it reveals a brood of chicks gazing out of the birdhouse hole.

An artistic cleverness.
