Carved Plaster . 2011

From a tale by The Brothers Grimm.

“There was once a Princess who was haughty, and would be subject to no one. She had an apartment with twelve windows, which looked in every possible direction. From each window she saw more distinctly until, from the twelfth she saw everything above the earth and under the earth, and nothing at all could be kept secret from her……”

Fiona Bowley The Sea Hare. 1

“….Those who tried, but were discovered by her, were to have their heads struck off and stuck on a post. Ninety-seven heads of dead men were already standing before the castle.”
