Nice cod-piece

Say what you like about transvestite, Turner Prize-winner potter, Grayson Perry, but he's certainly not conventional. 

This is his Knucklehead, built by Battistini, and designed to transport the artist's teddy bear, His Highness Alan Measles, around on a rearward facing throne within a glazed, pink portico. Perry has designed certain aspects of the machine himself, including wing-nuts with teddy bear details.

“The art world is not engaged with the real world,” Perry told Radio Times in a recent interview.

Imagine - Grayson Perry and the Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman airs on BBC1 tonight at 10.35.

Don't expect him to be riding a burgundy Deauville...
