This was made by a local potter and is supposed to have water running out its mouth - but the pump has been broken for years now Smile It is made of clay and not of some metal.

Stunning piece of pottery, abit like a green man. You have captured it well, nicely centred and the light is perfect. Love the soft rich earthy colours!

Nicely captured just the right amount of light to create good texture
which gives good 3D affect. Well done. WesternRed.

A very real looking face, almost sinister, over-whelmed by the foliage creates a different kind of portrait. I like it!
