Christmas tree in the Victoria and Albert Museum
Christmas tree in the Victoria and Albert Museum. Mid-December. Practice shows that the wonder tree can be built out of anything: the curiouser, the more creative. We have recently admired the Christmas tree out of Lego, which is set in London. But in the British capital is still at least one “tree”, which deserves attention. In the Victoria and Albert Museum the christmas tree is made of 3.3 miles of elastic cord.
The tree was inspired by the age old craft of bobbin lace, a lace textile made by braiding and twisting lengths of thread, which are wound on bobbins to manage them. It’s definitely something to admire this holiday season for, not only, its intricate design but also it’s really cool shadows! The shapes of the cord and metal rings make snowflake-like shadows on the ground. When looking at the shadow of the entire tree, you’ll see one really large snowflake made up of tiny ones.
