Room Under the Birds, Nowy Wiśnicz Castle

The room under the birds is one of the former bedrooms belonging to owners of the castle. The name refers to the frieze visible under the ceiling, dated dating to the late 18th century, which depicts birds and floral ornamentation. Paintings from the 1st half of the 17th century in window glyphs are even older and more valuable. The condition of the preserved polychromes required numerous additions and reconstructions. The ceiling is contemporary and wooden, and is modelled after the Deputy Hall at the Wawel Castle. The furnishings include the 19th-century furniture such as an elaborately sculpted bookcase in Renaissance style and a Renaissance clothes chest.
