The Sacred Heart

So I finished 'The Listening Knots today and started polishing a piece of Somerset Alabaster, from here I drilled some holes and then a cup of tea and a few thoughts, I decided to put the alabaster on a piece of charred wood and make some wooden dowels to hold it in place, the alabaster already reminded me of a heart and the black stakes that held it in place gave it a medieval feel, I then decided to add the beaten copper array ala the rays on renaissance painting and sculptures, this now had a feel of a relic and having watched the programme on Van Hagens crucifiction. Nothing here was planned it just evolved, improv sculpture!
