A case for skulls? Neigh problem!

This was a bit of a different job. I was asked to come up with a new way of displaying three horse skulls that were found in the belltower of Elsdon Church in the late 19th century, and kept in a small glass-fronted cupboard in a dark corner of the church. I worked with Geoff Jackson of Langley Furniture to design a new cabinet. Smartly finished in English ash, the skulls’ new home is lit by two LED spots powered by a 5v chargeable battery with an infrared motion-sensor to switch the lights on when a visitor approaches. Elsdon resident Jo Scott worked with the local creative writing group and Elsdon historians to produce the text. I wonder whether it will become Elsdon’s mane attraction. langleyfurnitureworks.co.uk www.joscott-heritage.co.uk The Revitalising Redesdale Project provided the funding.
