Mary Anstee-Parry's sculptures combine the humour and well-balanced design of medieval carving and the vibrant symbols of tribal sculpture from the west coast of Africa. From these two disciplines she aims to depict a sculptural world containing patterns, symbols and order.

Mary says:

"This piece was originally carved in wood as a sampler for a 'barley twist' motif prior to making a sculpture using a much larger version of this type of decoration. This was a practice piece for a set of figures to be exhibited in a forthcoming show titled How do our clothes define us?.
