    A locust feeding on time

    by christine.j Written Aug 31, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This year, 2009, Cambridge is celebrating the 800th anniversary of the university. There are several events, but the strangest thing I saw is a clock.
    It is a big, golden circle and on the top of it a locust is sitting. Not a nice, friendly grasshopper, but a really nasty looking locust. Each minute, its mouth opens a bit more.
    This is to symbolize how the time is passing and once it has passed, there is no getting it back. I suppose the artist wanted to point out that the last 800 years of the university are really and truly gone.

    I cannot say I like this clock, but it's certainly very interesting to look at.

    Ickworth House

    O.k, so Ickworth House is in Suffolk, however, with no other tips for Suffolk, it's going here under Cambridge.

    Will add more in a mo.
