Artist’s website: www.delgeist.com
Constructed using local Silurian slate and situated within an abandoned slate quarry, Pyxis is 41 x 56 x 56 inches in size.
‘The quarry’s rubble heaps and voids hold evidence of great exertion by mankind as well as by nature. ‘Pyxis’ represents the centring of these forces, both physically and symbolically….’
‘A Requiem for the quarry as well as for the ages’
On the edge of an area that has recently been felled, this is a calm and contemplative structure.
