Sculpture depicting Marram Grass
Sculpture depicting Marram Grass
This sculpture depicts the "Gafrod" of marram grass, harvested and drying in the sun. Newborough residents used to harvest the Marram grass every two years, and leave it to dry from its green colour to a golden yellow.
Gafrod was the local term for the bundles of marram standing on end, gathered and tied at the top with a plaited cord of marram.
