Images in progress.
Working with themes such as hiding and subterfuge, the pheasant house had a tunnel underground straight to the main house at the Warsaw Zoo, where the "guests" as they were called, could come out of hiding and have dinner, and frequently they had musical evenings, played the piano, and maybe they could dance a little. The piano featured in the subterfuge, as they had a coded of alert when a certain opera tune from Offenbach was played. The "exploded view" of a house is to show all the possible places of hiding, the sketch for a dinner evening, the pheasant house tunnel by night, and the general house furniture suggesting concealment behind normality.
