THE HENHAM SERPENT
This piece was released in November 2011 and it's his interpretation of the story of the Henham Serpent legend
The Henham Serpent first appeared in 1668 in the village of Henham, Essex. A pamphlet produced in 1669 gave details of the creature "about nine feet long" with strange feathers around the eyes and remarkably small wings - some people catching a mere glimpse through the trees, others reported it flying overhead.
It was largely thought to be a hoax, perpetrated by a band of mummers capering about Birch Wood with a wooden & canvas dragon - but imagine if the 'fake' attracted the 'real thing', a flying serpent with not unfeasibly small wings but long, elegant wings with which to plane gracefully over the canopy.
