Art in Salcey Forest - original exhibition
Wood spirit II
Whilst exploring this area of the forest I came across an Ash tree which had naturally fallen - the top was peculiarly shaped (the trunk had formed a cross section then continued in two main uprights) and reminded me of antlers. I have pared down the lines of branches, and the tree top once again stands upright to form Wood spirit II - a reference to the antlered god of the woods once worshiped by our ancestors. The last of nine sculptures on the Art in Salcey Forest trail, I encourage visitors to add their own 'offerings' to this sculpture and thus to the forest. The photos show the sculpture, the 'web' I have woven to one side, and some of the offerings added so far.
