More sculptures for Horseworld Sculpture Show

Busy building up Horseworld Sculpture Exhibition at Horseworld horse and donkey sanctuary near Bristol. Above one of the jigsaw bits - about a metre wide - painted on a sponge mattress by Andrew De Friesz, evoking the cave paintings of Lascaux. They are scattered round this patch of thornbush. The effect is similar to picking out cave paintings in the dark. Andy uses unconventional materials. A former chef at the Ritz, he made a corset for the couturier Jean Paul Gaultier out of biscuits. Below my Lady and the Unicorn, made from recycled bits and pieces and covered with granules of recycled glass. In mediaeval mythology unicorns were very fond of ladies and they were often depicted together, most famously in the tapestries in the Cluny Museum in Paris. The Chinese believed unicorns were brightly coloured - I don't know about bright blue but that's artistic licence. The lady was a mannequin off a skip.
