The winning design will be built to 40ft high+, and 8 feet+ wide in wooden lathes/straw/willow enabling the crowd to see it across the far-reaching views of South Parks Oxford.

This year our Sculpture will be built 40 feet tall. This means that a tall slender design would be preferable please download a template from our website www.wickermanoxford.co.uk

The design needs to suit the Oak Lathes and willow we use please see gallery pictures www.wickermanoxford.co.uk for wicker sculptures already made.

Colour can be incorporated; lights in the eyes, a headpiece which can create height and look very dramatic. The options are never ending. Please be considerate to copyright, only use fictional/mythical characters.

The winning design will be built by Oxford Round Table member, Dan Barton and friends of Wicker Man Oxford Project and the finished creation will be burnt at the Oxford Round Table Charity Firework Display on 3rd November 2012 at South Parks, Oxford with all profits going to charity. The 2011 Oxford Round Table Fireworks display attracted crowds of approx 25,000 to watch the burning of Medusa who stood 40 feet tall and the inner metal design.
