Wrapping things always brings unexpected and often slightly sinister aspects out of familiar objects. After an early morning at Stonehenge I drove up to Oxford, to give a talk at the Pitt Rivers Museum. The public access to the Pitt Rivers is through the Oxford University Museum of Natural History. Its slightly older neo-gothic Deane-Woodward building (1861) is closed this year while they complete restoration work to the roof. I photographed these creatures with my phone as I left.
And this is how it looks when it’s open, with a roof like a great whale’s rib cage.
