Putting the finishing touches to my Fulehung block.
In the Battle of Murten in 1476, the Thun fighters captured the Bold the court jester of Charles. This, now called Fulehung the translation is The Lazy Dog, he is at the present time the most famous character of Ausschiesset. With mask, and Söiblattere Schyt equipped, he chases the crowd through the streets of Thun and distributes sweets to the children.
This folk tradition will be happening a 5 am on Monday the 22nd September and is part of a Three day festival.
So a few months ago I donated my collection of prints based on British Folklore traditions to the Museum of British Folklore. This month I am featured in their news letter.
Please take a look as I have also written a piece about my prints for them .
