High up in the middle of the dusty texture of this painting is the half invisible figure of the Celtic God of thunder, Taranis, with a human head and the body of a hoofed animal. Dry leaves and newspaper are locked into the surface, suggesting a vast landscape and painted with the coarse red earth pigment of Mynyd Epynt, Wales, where the inhabitants were cleared to make way for a firing range at the beginning of the Second World War.
