Roadside figures near Penuwch
Roadside figures near Penuwch
On closer investigation I discovered that they are made of fibreglass, painted to resemble bronze. One male figure may be a king, as he wears what appears to be a crown. What sort of king? A gypsy king? His lady, or possibly queen(?) appears to be carrying a pot of paint, or a handbag resembling a paintpot. The fibreglass pony has a docked tail and wears swimming goggles. And appears to be deep in conversation with the humans. Are they horse-traders? Have I had too much coffee? Why is my attention span getting so poor? Prompting more questions than they answer, these figures are a wonderful roadside conundrum.
