I am not going to assign a gender on this androgynous stone carved statue, but it is rather beautiful and quite solemn in it own way.
I've been wanting to share this picture a while ago as it made me smile. Someone had yarn bombed it, or at least lovingly adorned them a colourful crochet scarf to stay warm and a pair of spectacles to ignite a little sunshine and humour into what I remember was a blustery grey day. It does certainly bring a smile to your face as well as a little magic into your life, well I think so.
We actually took this picture some time last year or maybe even a year before that, when we visited an area of Newport called Caerleon. I will share more pictures of it tomorrow, but this is my contribution for Sunday Snap hosted by JibberJabber UK for Sunday Snap; and My Sunday Photo hosted by One Dad 3 Girls; and Karen at My Little Home and Garden for Sunlit Sunday. If anyone knows any more about the significance of horns and the story behind this stone carved character, I'd love to know.
I have two other similar yarnbombed pictured that may make you smile. Click here to see Keeping Monkey Warm and Cardiff Yarn Bombing People Like Us.
