Magwitch 121/14 Vase

Limited Edition
Vase
Vase

One of very few ancient landscapes remaining in London, RSPB Rainham Marshes, was closed to the public for over 100 years. Skilfully, Vicky positions the vast Dartford bridge in the background of the design as one of Britain’s largest birds, the Grey Heron, takes centre stage in his wetland home. The sight of her Grey Heron, standing in solitary siege on over the medieval marshes is one that is as familiar as it is bewitching.

In pensive stillness, the Grey Heron stands on Magwitch style bent, stilt-like legs as it overlooks the Thames Marshes. This sparse, reed-clustered landscape "intersected with dykes and mounds and gates, with scattered cattle feeding on it" inspired Charles Dickens to write Great Expectations, with Abel Magwitch as one of its major fictional characters. Over the reeds a flying Grey Heron beats its outstretched wings like the white billowed sails that once moved slowly up and down the river.
