Children and Artists learn by observation, and in all learning, there is an element of imitation or copying of what has been seen. it is an old adage that we learn from example, and so I am of the belief that children deserve to experience art that is good.
the pain of that first fall so many of us had in the school playground, when we limped home with grazed knees; its a detail that can't be missed out!
And did you spot it? Yes, I added a little extra cloth to the ephod, so as to cover his bare groin.
The green tinged torso on the left, would never have worked with the new blue detailing, added to replicate the schools colours.
With the wood cleaned, smoothed and replenished, the crucifix looks resplendent.
I hope it will catch the attention of the young students, just as would a bright new butterfly which has come to rest on the school corridor wall.
