Don’t ask me why but here is a Giant, and I do mean Giant, Jelly Baby which I’ve just discovered doesn’t exist in the USA. Imagine a tiny sweet made from the inside of a jelly bean in this shape and you have this, only in this instance it’s 4ft high! Then we have a giant light filament glowing rather nicely hanging from the wall. Up tomorrow will be the start of the Wellcome exhibition full of weird, wonderful, amusing and somewhat disturbing things!

More images from last year, yes I am that far behind. Took a walk down the road with a friend to visit the Wellcome Collection (no, that’s not a typo, was the guy’s name). They were having two exhibitions, the first you weren’t allowed to take pictures of but the second you were and was displaying Henry Wellcome’s personal collection of anatomical artefacts from around the world (and boy, did this guy have a ton of stuff, which you’ll see). The first few postings for here will be of other items in the building prior to getting into that exhibition. The first image here is some piece of sculpture I will let speak for itself, the second is obvious and the third is actually a recreation of a slice of a human being made from plasticine and sandwiched between two sheets of glass, incredibly well done too.

This is the last post for the V&A Museum. At some point I’ll also post a large panorama of the front of the building, that is once I can figure out how to display them on here without them being too small to view. Up next, The Welcome Museum!
