A giant sleigh laden with presents is greeting residents in Prickwillow after artists transformed the village’s phone box for Christmas.

The large sculptural piece, created by The Ouse Life Drawing Group, completely envelopes the phone box and has been mounted so that it appears to be entering a chimney on the pavement.

The phone box has been used for quirky art exhibitions and features since 2010 and previous exhibitions have included a controversial photograph of a giant naked man climbing out of the phone box.

Cary Outis, a spokeswoman for the art group, said: “This is the third time Ouse Life have held a Christmas exhibition at the phone box. We’ve had huge fun creating it and hopefully visitors will enjoy it too.”

A grand unveiling of the latest installation, named Santa Calling, will take place at 2pm on Sunday (Dec 8), with work remaining in place until the end of January.
