Client : National Trust for Scotland

Date : December 2011

Combining imagery from Robert Burns poems (To a Mouse; Ae Fond Kiss, And Then We Sever; Death and Doctor Hornbrook) and modern visual references, Timorous Beasties designed a 21x8ft carpet-artwork for the Burns Museum, Alloway. Manufactured by Ayrshire’s world-class Turnberry Carpets, the exhibit is on public display in the museum café.
