Artist's description:

The Mari Lwyd is a wassailing folk custom found in South Wales. The tradition entails the use of an eponymous hobby horse which is made from a horse's skull mounted on a pole and carried by an individual hidden under a sackcloth. It represents a regional variation of a "hooded animal" tradition that appears in various forms throughout Britain.

This particular chap is a regular visitor to our folk festival here in Broadstairs.

The print has been hand carved and hand printed using two plates, one printed in black and one in metallic gold.

Materials used:
