 The Paragon School, Bath, playground has a new piece of fairytale magic in the form of an Owl & the Pussycat wood sculpture; a homage to Edward Lear.
Based on the trunk of cut-down tree, this multi-faceted sculpture features an owl, pussycat, moon, stars, candles, a large rig for a sail, as well as giant pot of honey. Installed into the curve at the base of the tree is a new boat for children to sit in, enscribed with a line from the famous rhyme.
The Cupressus tree had been a much loved play place and spot of summer shade for most of its sixty years. There was sadness when staff realised the tree had died and had to be felled. Having been such a feature of the playground at the school, they knew they wanted to do something special, something that would complement the other wood carvings in the grounds.
