Prehistoric fertility symbols were found in this area, and this sculpture is my fertility symbol for the survival of the planet.

Inspired by vulva-shaped healed wounds in nearby beech trees, the hollow helical stone sculpture rises out of a First World War bomb crater. It is filled with maize flowers, and stalks from the farms below the mountainside, along with leaves, earth and wild cyclamen plants from the forest floor. One day the sculpture will literally flower as the plants grow out from between the stones.
