'WIND HORSE' (printed calico, washing line/red twine, coloured cloths pegs)
Wind Horse (Lung-ta) is the name given to Tibetan prayer flags that flap and fly like a horse's mane. The wind is said to disperse the prayers on the flags over the land and into the sky. My Wind Horse consists of 12 printed fabric poems taken from the irreverent wildflowers section of my first book 'The Glass Puddle'. They are hooked onto a red washing line by coloured wooden cloths pegs. The poems waft in the archway of the 'Biosphere', an area of the allotment that is dedicated rewilding and conservation. The sculpture & poetry trail is part of the Heritage Open Days celebrations and can be viewed until Mon 19th September at St Mary's Allotments, Leamington Spa.
