You can either sew or iron on this little dude; if you iron it on make sure to turn it to the hottest setting (with the steam OFF) and place a tea towel over the top of it to protect the design. Iron for 3 minutes & viola!

About Ego's County:

Immortality isn't always everlasting life; for most people lasting life is granted in the legacies we leave behind. Traditionally these legacies are work-related, which have historically excluded the crucial domestic work of women in raising successful and, more importantly, happy and fulfilled descendants, at the expense of the immortality of their own names. While women continue to (slowly) move into high-performance work, with the opportunity to make a mark on traditional historical narratives for themselves, maybe it's time we re-examined what it is that constitutes living on, question what we want to be remembered for, and ask why anyone would want to be immortal anyway.

Ego's County is inspired by the Hesperides; the nymphs of the setting sun. They tended the garden where the immortality-granting golden apples grew, which Heracles stole during his labours. In their grief they were turned into trees... because that's how we do it in Ancient Greece!

This piece takes its name from the poem Conscript (for James Ballard Sutton) by Philip Larkin
