In the distance you can just see Blickling Lake, with a small section of Blickling Hall, windows alight behind the trees. The llama and the head of the dog are from drawings done at the Sainsbury Centre. The girl holds a tin milagro a religious folk charm traditionally used for healing purposes and as a votive offering.
I was also involved in the Heritage Art Trail, working with Robert Smith the Harbour Master, setting the text and getting it fabricated for the old Mortuary Doors.
It is a moving piece, those doors have been passed through by so many people, each leaving some of their atoms caught in the wood grain.
You can find this piece on the wall of the Harbour Master's Office down on the Quay. Almost opposite Rachel Long's wonderful Lifeboat Horse out in the harbour.
The Heritage Sculpture Trail is well worth taking the tie to walk round, some really good pieces of work around the town and down on the quays and it runs until the end of September.
Also many good places to eat in Wells!
