Etching

h: 28 w: 38 d: 1 (cms).

This etching is based on a folk custom that takes place every year on 5th November at Shebbear, Devon. In order to bring good luck for the following year, villagers turn over a stone which, some say, contains a devil. The organised anarchy of such folk customs interests and sometimes frightens me.
