Box of Bones

Many years ago I found the remains of a hedgehog in my garden, just the bones and spines. The rest had rotted away. They were so delicate and yet so strong and each one like a tiny sculptural object. I cleaned them up and put them in a box. 

In this lino print I worked on the different shapes of bones emphasised by the compartments of the box. 
I followed this with some mono-prints based on individual bones. These have a much more lost and other-worldly feel to them.
