Marriage and Consequence

My entry for this year’s Cheltenham Illustration awards. The brief was to take one’s starting point from the Amulets and Charms collection in the Pitt Rivers museum in Oxford. I chose to work from the Nigerian exhibit, a rubber model of a ‘night horse’. The creature, with the power to become invisible, is said to carry people of the Tsav society long distances in order for them to commit murder and other nefarious deeds.
