Today I made the faun for the Royal Cornwall Museum collection box. The plate he is holding above his head will be a small copy of a plate in the museums collection. The reason that he is holding a plate above his head will become clear later, I think it looks very Bacchanalian. My next job will be to put the faun onto the lifting mechanism and to see how he fits inside the crate.
