Clay and paint
Warrior is inspired by an image carved onto a stone font in a small Devon church. This avenging half horse half human figure looks like it has viking influence and is depicted as staving off dragon-like beasts.
We all need one of these to help us through life.
This little character has been lying in a nutshell box all on her own for a while…when I looked at her today I thought she should have some companions so I have removed her to a bigger nutshell where she will find company at last. She started life as part of the puppet challenge on Clive Hicks-Jenkins’ Artlog. I’ll update here when she has found her new life….
The curious boxes are making an appearance in the opening exhibition in this beautiful new gallery. This newly renovated chapel is in Market Street, in the centre of Abergavenny. It’s a beautiful space with coffee shop, bookshop, childrens’ area and pretty landscaped garden. The exhibition opens on 25 April and runs until 6 June. For more details look at the Art Shop & Gallery website.

Something in this image comes from tales of strange gifts being offered to babies….with unforeseen results.
