folk art, tate britain, london
four examples of a god in a bottle , popular with irish catholic navvies in the c19. no one quite understands what their purpose was, as amongst the crosses apear a selection of tools including hammers, saws, ladders, an anvil, pliers etc., not all of which are traditional roman catholic christian symbols from the passion .
