“Deer Slot” by Christine Angus
Carved from Lancaster Stone
Nationality – Scottish
Christine Angus was a sculptor in residence in Margam Park in 1998. She was a stone carver and produced several pieces of work, which were very much influenced by the natural environment of the Country Park. Christine was particularly interested in the deer herds and the imprints they left behind in the soft ground. Her sculpture, “Deer slot” contains references to the hooves of the animals and the imprints or “slots” they leave behind as evidence of their presence. Christine’s sculpture is to be found on the lawns of the Castle where at one time the real deer slots would have been found.
The Deer slot can be found to the right of the main steps leading from the Orangery to the Castle. It is set amongst the trees.
