Spirits of the Gardens

Yesterday evening Lisa Muten installed thirty or so small figures in some of the trees in the park. They are between 4 and 10 centimetres high, made of plasticine. She said that she sees them as representing the spirits of the departed who were buried here when it was an active graveyard which more or less ceased in 1856. Some families owned plots with the right to continue to use them, so there was the occasional entombment here right up until the 1930s.

She is going to send me some hi-definition images - meanwhile, here are some images taken with my trusty phone camera.
