My craft sculpture pieces relate to tramps living in London begging for food at a hostel run by nuns. A memory whilst living, working - later moved and met a tax collector.  Reading about life in Victorian times. Tramps have been around for hundreds of years and still are today with also bogus human beings pretending to be tax collectors.  (Note: I am not accusing anyone today of being a fraud relating to tax collectors.)  The king of the tramps named Cephas wears a cloak wrapped around  him.  Two other tramps have also Victorian names Jeptha and Silas; the latter is looking like a witch.  To be continued....at a later date, who knows when or where.
