This work discusses the intersection between the animal, human and landscape in traditional agricultural practices, specifically in Ireland. The canvas has been buried in soil presenting the natural effects of soil and the fertility of land. The physical process undertaken to bury and dig up the paper links to similar laborious tasks in agriculture. The carcass depicted addresses the role of livestock in farming and their connections to land and humans. The carcass is also barren, signifying the deteriorating relationship between these spheres of traditional farming.
