From the series of fourteen prints by Clive Hicks-Jenkins, editioned by The Penfold Press, based on the medieval poem 'Sir Gawain and the Green Knight'.
Author and curator James Russell describes Clive's depiction of The Travails:
"This is the moment when we realise, beyond all doubt, that the Green Knight is a magical being. The axe has done its bloody work, severing the strange visitor’s head, but rather than fall to the ground and die the Green Knight picks up his head and holds it aloft to speak."
