The Beast of Bodmin Moor PLQ17 by Vicky Lovatt of Moorcroft


The Beast of Bodmin Moor PLQ17.

Vicky places you among the rugged landscape of Cornwall’s Bodwin Moor just as dusk is falling over the Neolithic standing stones of Trevethy Quoit. It is said that these markers of time hold paranormal energy, and sightings of a black panther-like cat have added layers of legend, and trepidation to this wild place.

The Beast of Bodmin makes his way through the desolate, wild granite uplands of Bodmin Moor as a treeless landscape of heath, bare rock, peat bogs and mire, is brought to life in layers of metallic oxide paints. This is a landscape that has provided inspiration for writers, poets and sculptors. It has generated and joined folklore and legend with fact and fiction at times even blending into one another as tales had been passed down over the generations to allow us to question something beyond the parameters of normality is awake.
