‘Roman Remains’– Casting with Florence Bigglestone

Nick is working with fine artist Florence Bigglestone (@floss_art) this month – safely and with social distancing – to restore and cast a horse’s skull. The cast skull, in plaster, will then be painted and embroidered by Florence to represent the history of chariot racing in Roman Chester. It will be exhibited in the Grosvenor Museum, Chester as part of an exhibition.

These photos show the beginning of the restoration and casting process.

You can check out more of Florence’s work on her Instagram.
