by Martin Cooney


It was only once I had the block on the banker that my mind turned to marking out a spiral twist. I set too cutting out a helixial curve that would see both surfaces twist through a half turn. Gradually the pole took shape. The name Maypole struck me as apt as the ancient spring fertility symbol was generally danced around in a twisting winding fashion, and the implied movement in the pole’s twist seemed to suggest just such merry movement as the happy dancers spun round and around the annual Maypole.
