Dragon's Teeth

oil on canvas, 1000mm x 800mm…At Bekesbourne around fifteen miles from my home can be found these “Dragons Teeth”. They were made to encircle a Royal Flying Corps airfield during WW1. Basically, they are concrete pyramids weighing several tons each. The idea was they would prevent any invader from using motorised mobility to access the airfield. When the airfield became redundant they were placed in a convenient corner of a field and forgotten.
