The Pallasboy Project explores the creative process involved in the crafting of prehistoric wooden artefacts. This phase of the project develops and extends the practical and theoretical investigations of creativity, craft and woodworking in prehistory by focusing on anthropomorphic wooden figurines recovered from wetland contexts across Europe.
This project has been funded by the World Wood Day Fund via the International Wood Culture Society, and is co-ordinated by; Brian MAc Domhniall, Dr. Benjamin Gearey, and Caitríona Moore.
This figure was crafted by artist and ceramicist Cat Gambel as part of an experimental workshop facilitated by Meitheal Mara Community Boatyard Cork.
