The bucket, shield boss and grip, spearhead and bronze brooch date to the Saxon period. They are from a surface interment (burial) in the Winterslow 'colossal barrow', which is possibly pictured behind the grave goods.

Despite its age, this painting has a surrealist quality which has led Guest’s work to be compared with that of the twentieth-century landscape painter Paul Nash.
