Earlier this year I posted about a slate engraving hung from trees (see here). I rediscovered the piece recently and laid it out on the front lawn, where one of our cats immediately took a liking to it. The slate squares are 60cm, the material from China. The text is not inscribed but was painted on – using gold size and placing copper leaf on top. Effective. The text is from Hamilton Finlay: There are people who go look at gardens and fountains while empires are being overthrown.
