The Mari Lwyd is a wassailing folk custom found in South Wales. The tradition entails the use of an eponymous hobby horse which is made from a horse's skull mounted on a pole and carried by an individual hidden under a sackcloth. It represents a regional variation of a "hooded animal" tradition that appears in various forms throughout Britain.

This particular chap is a regular visitor to our folk festival here in Broadstairs.

The print has been hand carved and hand printed using two plates, printed on beautiful 100% cotton rag using metallic silver and black linseed ink.

Each of these prints is hand made and there'll be some minor variation.
