There were several glass display domes containing artworks, from pigs marching on stilts in front of George Orwell’s famous Animal Farm novel, to a copy of The Hound of the Baskervilles with Sherlock Holmes striking silhouette cut through its pages. Shown here is an artwork representing Ian Fleming, the British author of eleven Bond Novels, painted on the outside of the dome.
The British Bulldog, an unmistakable canine, often represents England as well as Sir Winston Churchill. It has also been adopted by the 'followers of fashion' on many occasions, from punks to an appearance on the catwalk at a Mulberry fashion show. Sitting proudly in the lobby this British Bulldog sculpture was adorned with a Vivienne Westwood inspired collar.
