Plantastic! competition winner: Snails Trails

13 October 2010 by David

The fab Plantastic! exhibition at World Museum enthralled visitors until 5 September and during this time visitors had the chance to populate our very own Plantastic! garden on Flickr with photos of all the weird and wonderful wildlife in and around Liverpool. All entrants were in with a chance of winning a month’s supply of tasty organic veg bags from Windmill Organic of Smithdown Road, and now the lucky winner has been chosen.

We had a dazzling range of interesting photos but after much deliberation the team at World Museum chose Snails Trails by Cyran Dorman, which you can see below.

Cyran’s entry caught the team’s eye because they loved the way the characteristic snail shape was echoed in the decoration on the wall, and the contrast of the dark shell and body with the atmospherically-lit cream whirls and swirls which the snail appears to approach with some trepidation – it could alternatively be titled ‘Snail’s Trials’!

Keep an eye on as well as on Twitter and Facebook because there are always exciting new competitions coming up!
