Pagan art in exhibition

The sculpture above, called The Cauldron of Rebirth, and the Green man sculpture below are both part of an open art exhibition at Hall Place, in Bexley, Kent, which is on until 6 September.

I visited Hall Place a few days ago to take some pictures because I wanted to write about the historic building and its ghosts. I will definitely still write about that, but while I was at the historic building I had a look around the temporary exhibition of sculpture that was on show.

These two pieces particularly caught my eye because of their pagan themes. I photographed them, but sadly couldn't buy either. The Cauldron of Rebirth, by sculptor Owen Legg, is on sale for £5,000 - far more than I could afford - while the mounted wooden mask called Greenman, by Derek Tryhorn, is not for sale.

Admission to Hall Place and to the exhibition is free and the venue is open daily from 10am to 5pm. To find out more, call 01322 526574 or visit the website
