Goose Girl

Goose Girl

This image combines two of my favourite things – geese and tiles. I’m posting it in celebration of my Chinese gray geese hatching a pair of goslings this week.

This panel is one of a set in the Royal Bournemouth Hospital by W B Simpson which were moved from the original site of Royal Victoria Hospital in 1993. I think the designer was fond of geese as well as they feature in two of these panels. Its a shame that the panels are mounted on stairways within the building rather than a space where people wait and can take time to look at them without blocking the stairs. However, at least they have been preserved and are still accessible
