Artist’s Minumental

The artist has created two limited-edition Minumental Telectroscopes especially for this event.

Each is individually cast in brass and contains a Stanhope Peep. Stanhopes – tiny magnifying lenses - were hugely popular in Victorian times and were often mounted in jewellery or other objects to commemorate achievements or mark anniversaries. The Stanhope inside Paul St George’s Minumental enables the viewer to peep through a small hole and see either Tower Bridge or Brooklyn Bridge, just as in the original Monumental artwork.

Each beautifully packaged Minumental Telectroscope comes with a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity, and costs £175 + £7 shipping to anywhere in the world.
