As Paris would have it, this one was stolen from Nazi Germany…! The garden at Stonypath used to be inhabited by two live tortoises, who were, it appears, slow and savage rather than slow and amiable. Their noisy raids on the lettuce patch would customarily be followed by a hasty retreat up on to the moors. Panzer Leader is the title of a book by General Guderian, the foremost theorist of Panzer warfare.
This work features in the Inside The Garden At Little Sparta exhibition.
