I have to choose a title for the installation for the MA show. Although my project is focussed on English countryside the Cuerden Psalter is thought to possibly have been made by French craftsmen as it shows considerable French influence. I have decided on tableau -
A group of models or motionless figures representing a scene from a story or from history; a tableau vivant.
Origin: late 17th century (in the sense 'picture', figuratively 'picturesque description'): from French, literally 'picture', diminutive of table.
