The Cardiff Giant

Happy to have another completed image under my belt – working around other commitments I’ve managed to get this piece finished. Tapping into my love of giants, gothic Americana and old folktales / hoaxes, is a family portrait of the Cardiff Giant. Now, he’s not from my Cardiff, but one out in the USA, where back in the late 1860s he was raised from the ground and displayed as the remains of a petrified giant some 10 foot tall. The whole thing was a hoax, but here in my world, he was real and this is a family snapshot from his final days, somewhere in history.
