The Fury!

The Fury!
Bit of an odd one this!

This is a black and white version of of some detailed carving on a bronze gun, dated 1773, called the Furies Gun (so called because the carriage is carved with female figures symbolizing death and destruction). The gun is on display at Fort Nelson - home to the Royal Armouries national collection of artillery. (This description is partly taken from their souvenir guide).

Cheers mate..........I like your version as well, great minds etc...........

The place has had a multi- million pound makeover courtesy of the National Lottery - well worth another visit (but a pig of a place to take photos in)!
