The subtle sounds of nature are often lost on all but the most attentive listeners. That’s why students at the Estonian Academy of Arts created these massive wooden megaphones to amplify the sounds of the forest.

Photographer Tõnu Tunnel captured the photos of these surreal wooden megaphones in Estonia’s Pähni Nature Centre. Birgit Õigus, a student at the Estonian Academy of Arts, designed the pieces amplify the sounds of nature. They can also be used as a band shell of sorts for outdoor musical performances.
