Sea Serpents - Jacky Ward Lomax

[August - October 2005]

Jacky began carving the tree, in Westbourne Avenue, Hull, at the end of August 2005.

The dual nature of the tree has inspired her to sculpt entwined sea serpents (or dragons), similar to the Hull Sea Dragon Gamelan.

This tree was felled in 1999, so its condition has been deteriorating, but it has a few years left in it yet!

The most recent photo was taken by Kate Stockdale in April 2008 during a snowstorm.
