Weird Wiltshire

We visited a small local museum last week to see an exhibition entitled "Weird Wiltshire" - a very interesting variety of work by local artists, including paintings, sculpture, mosaics, jewellery etc. There were certainly plenty of themes to explore as the county is noted for its ancient burial mounds,  the stone circles at Avebury and Stonehenge, huge figures of white horses cut into chalk hillsides and an abundance of crop circles appearing during the summer months.

I was intrigued by the impressive 6 metre tall figure of St. George which towered above the
museum gardens - a must for a quick photo and a sketch to be added to my journal later in the day.
