'The Nine Maidens - (Boskednan Stone Circle, Cornwall)'.
Cornish Brown Slate. Steel. Oil Paints. Gold Leaf.
Dimensions: 32 Inches High.
This circle, on the hills above Gurnards Head, are said to be the figures of young maidens turned to stone for their sin.
The work is intended to be kept closed and locked but when opened the interior contains a diagram of the circle created from the verse-
'Watching Still, New Druids With Their Anteater Tongues Perform The Ancient Ritual Sacrifice Of Maidens New'.
The remaining standing stones are marked on the circle with gold leaf except one, this is represented by the carved figure of one of the 'maidens'.
The work is very much about continuity of past and present.
