It might represent cohesion and a sense of balance, thereby providing visual stimulation or a space for meditation or perhaps symbolise status, political beliefs or cultural tradition.
Sounds very intellectual, but what the heck does it mean :o( Anyway it all looks very nice, some interesting exhibits.

The artist who created this is Doug Jones, it's called Non Sum Qualis Eram.
The next pieces are by Michael Brennand Wood. If you google his name you will find hundreds of pictures of his work. I haven't got the photo's on their side, they are all mounted on plain white walls. Sorry I can't tell you much about them but I had a quick flit round in about ten minutes, then spent another 20 minutes gassing to the staff, leaving me 30 minutes to go to the bank, Asda, and the market.
I checked the winning numbers of the raffle tickets on the Bransby Horses web site, and I am soory but I am the bearer of bad news, nobody won a prize. Sorry :O(
