a Sculpture of Lewis Carroll’s Jabberwocky from his Poem, The Jabberwock and his 1871 novel Through The Looking Glass. The Sculpture is made from Bones found on the Beaches of Paternoster, Western Cape, South Africa. The bones are the remains of Seals, Seagulls and some other Unidentified Sea-life. The sculpture resembles some of the Creatures in Jan Svankmajer's 1988 adaption of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Alice, which was also made from real bones.
