This is a contemporary sculpture based on early Celtic & Pictish rock-art carvings and depicts a Labyrinth design.
The labyrinth is an ancient symbol, often used during prayer or meditation that relates to wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and spiral into a meandering but purposeful path. It represents a journey into our own centre and back out into the world. Labyrinths were also used by the Celts as protective symbols and traps for unwelcome spirits.
In the Celtic world, the labyrinth symbol has great meaning and features on many Pagan and Christian artworks. It is thought to represent rebirth, resurrection, evolution and progress.
A modern verse that often accompanies the labyrinth symbol:
With open heart and quiet mind. Approach this place and you will find, that shifting into labyrinth time, reveals anew your life’s design. Spiral around into the core, determine what your life is for. Then spiral out again and see, the mysteries revealed to thee.

HOW THIS MINIATURE WAS CREATED
After many hours researching a subject, I travel the country to measure, sketch and photograph it. This information is brought to my workshop where I set about producing a detailed scale drawing. Once this is completed I use the drawing alongside the photographs to enable me to carve and sculpt the subject in miniature. This whole process takes many hours, often running into the hundreds. At the end the miniature sculpture becomes the master model with which I make the molds. Each resin casting I make from the molds is an exact reproduction of my original sculpture. I then spend a great deal of time with each and every casting to prepare and paint it using a variety of spray and brush techniques to create a realistic representation of the original, ancient subject. Every stage of this piece you see here is crafted entirely by hand.
