It was my mother’s sixtieth birthday yesterday so a few of us went to Hever Castle for a day out. We stumbled across a book open in one of the rooms showing Anne Boleyn’s aunt, Lady Mary Henegham, who it turns out is my ancestor. Apparently we were still loaded and living in Norfolk until another one of my family was executed for regicide in 1648. I guess it doesn’t help your 17th century credit rating. If you knew my Dad, click on the link and you’ll see the likeness. What do you guys think? Does she look a bit like me? [Comments please]. Also saw some terrible chairs, the kind the author should be put in shackles for. Ping* and I went to the V&A last weekend to look at chinese chairs for my next sculpture. Much better.
Which reminds me, we had to postpone the Westminster show by one month for reasons of paperwork and publicity. If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well. I had a dream that ‘the skull of John the Baptist as a twelve year old boy‘ [click on ‘fundament’ image to the right] crumbled and needed rebuilding. This is not true. Actually I’m in the unusual pre-show position of having all my work ready to install over a month before!
