the heroic leek

As well as group production of lanterns for the Newbury Lantern Trail, we also individually designed lanterns for the installation.

I produced a 5m tall leek.

The leek was actually part of a tableau.
We were given an unexpected brief:
” there’s this picture called The Revolt Of Cairo, can you do something like that but with veg and a giant slug please?”

At Newbury Locks , I present you with . . .
a Heroic Leek fighting off the Heathen Slug, with a massacre of Innocent Veg in the background
