Cerne Abbas Giant

Hill Figure


Giant goes on display at Wiltshire Heritage Museum

I know it's a few days old now, but:

"A previously unseen oil painting of the Cerne Abbas Giant in Dorset is now on display at Wiltshire Heritage Museum.

The painting, by Devizes artist David Inshaw, is one of a number of additions to the White Horses and Hill Figures exhibition at the museum in Devizes.

Also on display are a triptych from wildlife artist Joanna May which shows white horses alongside her trademark British brown hares.

Alongside these new artworks are historical programmes and souvenirs showing celebrations held at the Westbury White Horse for coronations and jubilees.

The exhibition focuses primarily on the chalk figures of Wiltshire but also includes figures from all over Britain.

The exhibition will run until February 27."
