Guardian Birds of Relics
Guardian Birds of Relics
These birds were made for an exhibition at Glastonbury Abbey in 2017-18. They are guardians of the precious relics that were apparantly in abundance in the Abbey during the Medieval ages before the reformation. The relics I have made are mostly playful analogies, comparing the Catholic tradition of the veneration of relics with modern day trends and culture and of souvenir gifts.
