The Gallery

Oliver has his very own art gallery in our stairwell.

Exhibit 1: Nanny's pyramid relief (1970)
This tactile experience constructed from plaster-of-paris and resembling an Egyptian landscape, is his first port of call (see picture above).

Exhibit 2: The Little Bull
This oil-on-canvas artistic ditty is one he loves to scratch. It makes him laugh every time he sees it.

Exhibit 3: The bannister
He seems to consider this the best of the lot. He inspects the base section, then traces its angled lines to the top section which he then has to inspect too. Then he'll lean back down to see the base section again. He'll repeat this as many times as we are preapared to walk up and down the stairs with him leaning out of our arms.
