Heeley City Farm
concrete on wire frame

Arranged in the 'natural' surroundings of Heeley City Farm. (A-Z p99 6F)

A range of animals including a goat, a chicken standing on a duck and a speckled turkey, made out of concrete.

Made with active help from schoolchildren from two local primary schools. The commission was created through the Graves Art Gallery's Education Officer and took place while a solo exhibition of Mayne's work was on show in the Gallery.

The farm suffered a bad fire in 1996 and the goat and turkey were destroyed. The duck and hen remain although curiously the latter no longer sits on the duck's back!
