2,100 Handmade Daffodils have been placed in the shadow of St Paul’s Cathedral in London to mark the launch of a charity appeal for those living with terminal illness. The Public Art installation called the Garden Of Light is illuminated throughout the night in Paternoster Square.
Each daffodil is designed to represent each of the Marie Curie nurses who work across the united Kingdom providing care and support for those living with a terminal illness. Artist Andrew Shoben designed the work with his public art collective Greyworld.
The installation features winding pathways which people can walk along while listening to recordings of voices reading real-life letters of thanks sent to Marie Curie nurses from families of patients they have helped. The installation is open to the public for free until march 12.
