Sep 2, 2009 - Neolithic Burial

Its impossible to walk this beautiful countryside and not be at peace with yourself. The vistas are repetitively captivating and seemingly also at peace. Dry stone walls, painstakingly hand built over generations, are often host to opportunistic bright green mosses, whilst the woods of beech and the meadows scattered with birches harbour deer, hare, rabbits, foxes and a variety of birds.

The pigs were made from moulded plastic or something and were decorated in different ways by local artists. The whole 100 pigs all have different designs and textures.

In Search of Jane Standing out in Bath is easy...
