York Minster is a wondrous building and is covered in ornate carvings and decorative features; the longer you look the more and more you see. I am amazed by the effort, dedication and craftsmanship that have gone into creating so many decorative pieces, which are almost too small to see or are lost in the general splendour of the building. My Cat and Mouse works have been created by focussing on just one of these areas of detail. My intention was to photographically ‘free’ them from the Minster and thereby allow them to be appreciated on their own merits.
The Lion is a piece of decorative carving work that can be found on a stone bench in Dean Park Gardens. How many people must sit on the bench without realising that such a splendid beast lies below them?
