More at the V & A
What ever you may think of the subject matter the technical difficulties involved in firing something this size are enormous. Again you must see it in reality to get the real feel of it. My hand is not still enough. The lighting is perfect for the naked eye but flash would distort the image. Next time I will take a better picture with a steadier hand. I am not quite sure if I dare take a tripod in.
As you can see, I have some rather better examples of "parent and child relationships" above this one and, yet to come, (check English sculpture blog later). I have some 30 odd photos yet to up load and will do so a few at a time.
