Bird Head, 2019

25 x 25 x 10 cm​

Kilkenny Blue Limestone

The shape of Bird Head continually turns in upon itself. It brings to mind a swirling flock of birds.

 

The Kilkenny stone itself is made up of millions of tiny fragments of fossilised creatures, possibly some distant ancestors of birds, from 430 million years ago.

 

The swirling ghosts of the ancient creatures flow through the stone itself.
