Eclogue VI: forests grow, and beasts roam the wild land

I made this etching in response to Samuel Palmer’s etchings of Virgil’s Eclogues. Driving up to North Wales I passed a stunted little oak wood walled off from the sheep that nibbled the mountainside around it.

Of course, it reminded me of the walled orchard on the green hill amongst the mountains in ‘The Magician’s Nephew’ by C S Lewis. To grow anything in Wales you have to fence it off from the sheep, and I imagine it was the same with the goats in Virgil’s time...
