Hermetic Globe No. 7 (revised 2010) outside our premises at Ryde, now often called the ‘Wonder of Ryde’ it gives people a feeling of anticipation when entering the building because the globe greeting them is literally giving them another slant on reality, unravelling them and preparing an open mind for whatever they may find inside.
Hermetic Globe No. 7 was photographed on 06/06/2006, the Isle of Wight Council kindly restricted parking so that members of the Isle of Wight Austin Club could park their cherished cars outside, in addition to this, on the spur of the moment I thought it must be fun to position the 1957 company van as if it was driving up Union Street ( it is a one way street) – A Ryde policeman kindly agreed to this and halted the traffic so the van could be photographed.
When Hermetic Globe No. 7 was revised in 2010 we added several dinosaurs, some Donald McGill characters and also an image of Donald McGill.
