Constructing the Druid

Beaten copper and wood crving

15 Nov Constructing the Druid

From April to June 2016 saw a collaboration of chainsaw artist, anthony Cornforth and Peter Little’s work, a wood and copper 12 ft high Druid, commissioned by Kerry County Council.

 

Where it began

Finding the druid in the log

Starting to take shape

A sculpture forming

 

 

The wood seems to capture the sunlight

The figure appears from the wood

The sun shines from the wood

the character of the sculpture appears

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Beaten copper

Setting fire to the sculpture

Precarious moments

The Druid takes off to his new home

 

 

He appears to have walked there

The Druid is put into place and the camera on his staff connected

The leaning posture

He stands around 12 ft tall

The Druids back

Thee Druid looks over the Kerry mountains- notice the viewing point in the robes, that displays the camera image from his staff…
