Fireater of souls

1997

Carved and painted pine.

About 700mm high.

This piece was conceived as a piece of fairground art where small felt balls are thrown into the open mouth of the fire eater before emerging at the slots around his neck. The pirate was taken from a poster at a bus stop in Barcelona, the ship from a childrens illustration and the lady from part of an Edward Burra drawing.
