Trap for Quail

This trap is beautifully done. Crafted in Thailand.
Meant to trap "puyuh" or the quails. I am surprised that the carvings made it look like a grand door entrance to a house. For most birds, traps tend to be made to look natural or blend into the environment. These quail traps appears to the contrary.
