The English Civil War in Metal (left and below)
Repoussé panel, nickel silver, 50cm x 30cm


The images are inspired by period coins and medallions, used to spread political propaganda. There are busts of Cromwell and King Charles I, as well as the king on horseback riding into Oxford.

One of the more intriguing items is the rough token underneath the bust of Cromwell. It comes from Scarborough, which ran so short of money that silver plate was cut into rough chunks and stamped with the symbol of the town.
