You would never believe that this exhibit was made out of former gym climbing ropes...
This life sized rope sculpture was inspired by the story of a young Newfoundland dog named Bouncer. Presented to the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and York in 1901.
Created by artist Dominic Gubb who studied sculpture in London and has lived and worked in Wales since 1990.....here's some info about him and 'Bouncer' taken from information given by
Arlington Court the National Trust property where this exhibit is currently to be seen.
The carriage in the exhibit is not the one used by the original 'Bouncer',
but shown as an example.
