A sculpted indigenous garden featuring more than 60 works by Dylan Lewis.


‘Shapeshifting’, an essay by Laura Twiggs

‘Where does animalkind end and humankind begin? What of the wild and the primitive within? In exploring these tantalising enigmas, Lewis searches wilderness, myth and ancient belief systems for inspiration, meaning and answers.’

'The Rising': Ian McCallum

One day your soul will call to you with a holy rage.
‘Rise up!’ it will say…

Stand up inside your own skin.
Unmask your unlived life…
feast on your animal heart.
Unfasten your fist…
let loose the medicine in your own hand.
Show me the lines…
I will show you the spoor of the ancestors.
Show me the creases…
I will show you the way to water.
Show me the folds…
I will show you the furrows for your healing.
‘Look!’ it will say…
the line of life has four paths –
one with a mirror, one with a mask,
one with a fist, one with a heart.

One day, your soul will call to you with a holy rage.

Predators and Prey II, Preview

Arley Hall & Gardens, Cheshire, United Kingdom

Hosted by Lord and Lady Ashbrook, a selection of bronzes from the Christie’s Predators & Prey II auction was displayed at the magnificent Arley Hall and Gardens from 18 to 22 May 2011. The sculptures were shown alongside a pre-auction exhibition by world-renowned British artist L.S. Lowry, which included his most famous painting, The Match.

The gardens, considered among the finest in Britain, provided a spectacular backdrop for the sculptures. This pre-auction exhibition was opened by Lord David Linley, Chairman of Christie’s UK, and was sponsored by Audi UK. Seeing Africa’s big cats placed among the herbaceous borders, holm oak columns and avenue of pleached lime trees provided an awe-inspiring exhibition for visitors and collectors alike.
