Laser art: Swans

Leda And The Swan

By W. B. Yeats

    A sudden blow: the great wings beating still
    Above the staggering girl, her thighs caressed
    By the dark webs, her nape caught in his bill,
    He holds her helpless breast upon his breast.

    How can those terrified vague fingers push
    The feathered glory from her loosening thighs?
    And how can body, laid in that white rush,
    But feel the strange heart beating where it lies?

    A shudder in the loins engenders there
    The broken wall, the burning roof and tower
    And Agamemnon dead.

                        Being so caught up,

    So mastered by the brute blood of the air,
    Did she put on his knowledge with his power
    Before the indifferent beak could let her drop?

So I am definitely loving the bird theme at the moment! I have had these planned for quite a while; I took this photo in Regent’s Park  in 2009 and have always wanted to engrave it.

These were designed as a pair; I mirrored and inverted (amongst other things!) the image for the black swan. They are 400 x 400mm on 12mm MDF backed birch veneer which gives them a really nice texture. They are hand finished and treated.

If you would like to order one or the pair please get in touch!
