A Space Place Practice touring exhibition: Aberystwyth University.

This small ceramic sculpture was taken from a cast of part of a 14th century sarcophagus from the crypt of Worcester Cathedral. The elaborately carved stone figure that forms the lid is of a knight, lying on his back with his feet resting on a small animal, possibly a lion.
Placed in this museum archive box, although transformed the ceramic piece retains something of the bodily about it, questioning a relationship between protection and confinement, a re-envisagement of the sense of being in the crypt.
