Seaside sculpture
Seaside sculpture
This distinctive and colourful hand-painted wood carving by local artist Alan Faulds stands in his own private garden in Lower Largo which is passed by the Fife Coastal Path. It is based on the Malagan carvings, made in New Ireland (Papua New Guinea) for use in Malagan wedding and other ceremonies, some of which last for several days. These statues used to be burnt at the end of each ceremony but many are now retained, because the carving skills to produce them are now held by very few Papuan sculptors.
