This was painted to bring attention to the cruel sport of badger-baiting. It’s where badgers are baited with dogs, a baiting session typically results in the death of the badger, and possibly serious injuries to the dogs. It used to be a popular event held after church on Sunday 😮
When the badger can’t fight any longer it is killed by stabbing or beating to death with a shovel. Whilst this may sound like a story from the dark ages someone was sentenced for it in 2018 and this barbaric entertainment continues in hiding to this day in Britain and Ireland.
This is a genuine original artwork (not a print) in Pentel black ink on 1557 180gsm bright white heavy paper.
This will look great when mounted/framed and up on the wall, note that the price even includes FREE GLOBAL POSTAGE !!
