Temporary New Window Display

Marti Dean’s magnificent Stag’s Head sculpture in the Museum window now has his antlers adorned with hagstones, items which are amongst the oldest forms of protection charm and look particularly appropriate on the ancient symbol of a stag’s head.

Taking up the theme of the First World War charms already in the window, our latest display adds some other eye-catching objects from the protection magic gallery, including witch balls, glass walking sticks and Hand of Fatima amulets.
