A narrow, single track road, lower than the fields it travels through, has steep, cliff-like sides, taller than a car, taller than a person. In many places, the pale, chalky bedrock is exposed. Trees grow atop these sides and their roots either delve through fissures in the rock (see Overhang) or, as here, seem to float above the rockface.

Firmanent was selected for the Society for Graphic Fine Art‘s Open Exhibition 2021.
