Carved wooden sett of badgers.
The badgers were carved from Corsican Pine, chosen for its shape and range of natural colours. The work took two weeks to carve using a chainsaw and rasp. Created in the 1880s to supply Liverpool with water, Lake Vyrnwy and the surrounding countryside - 24,000 acres of forest and moorland - is owned and managed by Severn Trent Water and managed in partnership with the Countryside Council for Wales, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds and Forest Enterprise Wales.The sculpture trail at Lake Vyrnwy was begun in 1997. Its continuing aim is to offer recreational activities and attractions around the lakeside using local resources and a local artist. Artwork depicted on the sculpture trail relates to the biodiversity of the Vyrnwy estate.
