Cerne Abbas Giant

Hill Figure


I was reading about the Turner Prize - winning artist Grayson Perry. He's well known for wearing dresses as his alter-ego, Claire, but he's also got an outfit which I thought TMA readers would like.

In the Guardian a couple of years ago he said:
This set of motorbike leathers was the first garment I ever had made, in 1989. I made the patches myself and took them in to the maker. He held up the willy patch between finger and thumb like it was a piece of off fish.
The figure also seems to figure in his work - 'Vote Alan Measles for God' for example!
