Wooden support system under the diorama

This image shows the maze like structure of the wooden struts under the diorama supporting the plaster and wire substrate.  In order to remove the bird specimens from the top of the diorama, conservation staff had to squeeze into some tight spaces to cut the securing wires holding the birds in place.
