Go to Top Our Fallen Sculpture is Righted

Posted: 9 February 2022

It's been more than a week but today I got round to lifting "Dave" back onto its two mounting points. But first, I wanted to take photographs of the tree stakes to which "Dave" had been screwed.

As might have been expected, securing the sculpture to the top of a tree stake was not going to last long. The screw had pulled out of the post bring all the gently rotting wood around the thread with it.

All I have done to fix Dave is screw into the top of the post in a new position. I am not under any delusions that this will be a very temporary fix!
