Sun God at Brocks Hill, Oadby, Leicestershire.

The crow here represents our very own native English Sun God Ra!
I carved his footprints into a delicious eight foot slab of seasoned oak, which was grown, felled, planked and rested on the Staunton Harold estate.

The footprints wind their way up this tasty slab of oak, on a journey to and past the willow 'sun' woven around a steel sphere nestled within the wood.
This handsome Leicestershire Sun God survived a rainy unveiling, but now casts a welcoming glow over Brocks Hill Park, Oadby and beyond.
