The Sun

Devoted reader SW suggested visiting Dale Chihuly’s  The Sun which has been unveiled in  Berkeley Square.

The 5.5 Metre installation consists of 1,573 hand-blown glass elements, weighs 2,000 Kilos and is illuminated each night.  The Sun has been on view in many prestigious museums and gardens around the world including the New York Botanical Garden (2006), de Young Museum (2008), the Salk Institute for Biological Studies (2010) and the Montreal Museum of Fine Art (2013).  Dale Chihuly’s current exhibition ‘Beyond the Object’ at the Halcyon Gallery in Mayfair has now been extended until 18 May.
