Fortunately I have many detail shots if this in case it's called for again.
These were on the fairy fence some where .I'll have to go back and re photo it.
This is a fairy chamber with a throne in side. Crystals tear down from the sides. Again better images will follow.
These are the posts that hold up the fence sections. They also hold the fairy chambers in the four corners.
This is the gate.What looks like celestial rays from above is piled steel behind it.
My early drawing of the gate.
All the sections of the fence. The whole thing is in miniature (about 2 1/2 feet high)
I've made a lot of hand forged calligraphy over the years . The supporting connectors were painted to match the stone they were mounted on.
This gate was made to represent the constellation Taurus.
This seen is of two large plywood mock up's of stone well covers. I supported the real stones at these precarious angles with hidden steel reinforcement. Owner with coffee for scale.
Latch works from both sides.
Gate swings both ways.
