A wonderfully naive 1960s textile collage depicting a scene from the Welsh 'Legend of Gelert'. Framed in distressed wood. 

In the Legend of Gelert, Prince Llywelyn went out hunting despite not being able to find one of his favourite hounds, Gelert. When he returned home, Gelert appeared, greeting him with a mouth dripping with blood. Llywelyn dashed to the nursery of his baby son, fearing that the dog had killed him. The nursery was in dissaray with the cradle upturned and blood spattered on the walls. Mad with grief, Llewlyn plunged a sword into Gelert's heart.

Just after, he heard his son's crying from underneath the cradle, unharmed. Next to him was the dead body of a wolf, whom Gelert had killed defending the child. Llywelyn then buried the dog with honours and told everyone of his bravery.
