The Long Man

After carving the Uffington horse for a stable sign, I wanted to do more in the way of chalk hill figures.

In 2014, I was given this very large (and heavy) Cornish roof slate (60 x 40 cm), so it was the ideal media to carve a representation of the Long Man of Wilmington.

I still have this piece if you are interested- please use the contact form orĀ  email hatchburncarve@yahoo.co.uk

Here’s the slate after carving and the beginning of enamelling the piece by hand;
