What is the piece?  I am just wondering how risky it is but without knowing if it is a 20m totem pole or a turned life size cherry we are a bit in the dark.


I sort of hope it is a life size cherry...

Cherry = lethal hazard. A child could choke on it, be given the Heimlich manouver, cherry could shoot out and blind someone, then in the confusion someone could tread on it and slip and fall and crack their pelvis. And that's just the beginning...

And sorry I should have updated this ...I spoke to the Gallery last week that I am going to and it turns out they can cover me under their own insurance ...they were restricted to 30 artists and as they squeezed me in last minute they thought all 30 places were taken but after another count I am in ,as long as a I sign a contract.

I spoke to another potential gallery recently and they stated that the items on S .O.R on their premises are not insured should they be stolen / damaged etc and suggested that owners should cover themselves for this risk only  , if they wish ....PL was their responsibility ...
