Magnificent Mwnt

Mwnt is a little piece of Paradise, located approximately 4.5m from Cardigan, in South Ceredigion Wales. Mwnt boasts spectacular views, fantastic walks, and a quaint whitewashed parish church. Additionally, there is a hidden sandy sheltered cove, to sit and soak up the peace and tranquillity on a quieter day.

The best of The Big Hoot 2015 and The Big Sleuth 2017

Does anyone miss the public art trails that were around Birmingham and the West Midlands like I do? The Big Hoot was held in the summer of 2015, while The Big Sleuth in the summer of 2017. We haven't had a trail like this in 2 years now. So in this post a look at some of my favourite owl and bear painted sculptures. Wild in Art have these trails around the country and around the world.

The best of The Big Hoot 2015 and The Big Sleuth 2017





Does anyone miss the public art trails that were around Birmingham and the West Midlands like I do? The Big Hoot was held in the summer of 2015, while The Big Sleuth in the summer of 2017. We haven't had a trail like this in 2 years now. So in this post a look at some of my favourite owl and bear painted sculptures. Wild in Art have these trails around the country and around the world.


There was over 100 owls and bears from each trail, so I'm not going to post all of them here. But you can follow the links to my Flickr albums for all my photos, including the little owls and bears.

The Big Hoot Birmingham 2015

The Big Sleuth Birmingham 2017

Comparing an owl and bear from approximately the same location, but two years apart.

Victoria Square

Alf the Penguin Owl was near the bottom of Victoria Square in front of the planted garden that now surrounds the Floozie in the Jacuzzi. The artist was Deven Bhurke and the sponsor was The National SEA LIFE Centre. During the trail a lot of these owls got vandalised, so when I saw this one part of the mask was lying on the plinth (they kept having to repair them). July 2015.

In July 2017 the Spock bear was near the top of Victoria Square. The artists were Maria Shrigley and Patricia Shrigley and the sponsor was Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce. Based on Spock from the Star Trek Franchise, originally played by the late Leonard Nimoy. As Spock appeared in Star Trek: The Original Series from 1966 - 1969 (Nimoy returned for the first six movies from 1979 to 1991). There has been new versions of Spock in the Star Trek Kelvin timeline movies (2009 - 2016) and more recently in season 2 of Star Trek: Discovery (2019).

Birmingham Cathedral (St Philip's Cathedral)

There was many owls around the grounds of St Philip's in July 2015. One of them was called Clash by the artist Damien Jeffery. The sponsor was KPMG.

As with 2 years before, there was loads of bears to be found around Birmingham Cathedral. Seen in July 2017 was Sweet William by the artist Caroline Jariwala: Mango Mosaics. The sponsor was LDC.

New Street

Ozzy Osbourne had his very own owl. Seen during July 2015 was Ozzy's Owl by the artists Ozzy Osbourne and Graham Frank Wright. The sponsor was Retail Birmingham. It was close to the Midland Metro extension to New Street Station. Paving at the circle near the Corporation Street junction with Stephenson Place was being done at the time.

Two years later in July 2017 you could find the bear based on William Shakespeare. Shakesbear was by the artist Donna Newman. The sponsor was Vodafone. Based on William Shakespeare, the Bard from Stratford-upon-Avon (1564-1616). By this point the Midland Metro line to Grand Central Tram Stop was up and running.

St Paul's Square, Jewellery Quarter

Heading over to the Jewellery Quarter, seen near St Paul's Church in St Paul's Square during July 2015 was Bejewelled Owl by the artist Claire Scully. The sponsor was Jewellery Quarter BID. In the middle of lavender.

Two years later in July 2017, the bear here was called Peabody by the artist Tory Allen. The sponsor was again Jewellery Quarter BID. Again surrounded by the lavender that is there each summer.

Golden Square, Jewellery Quarter

While The Jewellery Quarter Festival was on during July 2015, I saw Jewellery Owl in Golden Square. The artist was Sue Guthrie. The sponsor was Birmingham City University.

Two years later in July 2017 was Gummy Bear by the artist Deven Bhurke. The sponsor was Jewellery Quarter BID.
