Something a little different for this inspiration post. Less text, more pictures!
Having visited the wonderful ‘Beasts of London‘ exhibition at the Museum of London, there are some links between the two cities. The obvious ones are the lions and pigeons 😉
But there was a time when Elephants visited Lancaster too (most recently there’s the mechanical elephant returned to Halton Mill…), we have our horse related tales (with horseshoe)…..Lancaster has had it’s share of real beasts!
There are a lot of pigeons in Lancaster, and really they aren’t that different from this London fella.
Knit the city have even done a youtube guide to knitting a pigeon!
Some inspiration from the exhibition itself, there’s an awesome lion made out of hands (my picture really doesn’t do it justice), a pigeon made out of car parts and some cool graffitti art!
If you aren’t inspired by the folklore, be inspired by the beasts around you in Lancaster City Centre!
