Background, history, commissioner of the work

I made this sculpture at the beginning of my metalwork and research into ancient history. I started research in what was my final year of art college and made the sculpture at the end. This sculpture and work around it extends past art college and is still ongoing in my practice. When I made this sculpture I was being taught how to weld and make metal sculptures by artist Joeseph Inglby. This was the product of my learning.

Thematic/contextual information

The shapes forged in steel came from shapes I observed in nearby standing stones on the east coast of Scotland and with these shapes took knowledge from the bronze age folk of South Uist who mummified an amalgamation of different souls together as part of their burial ritual. She used this attachment of parts to help with the structure of the sculpture. I returned frequently back to my collection of lyrics, poetry, and stories to help layer the narratives in my sculpture
