Manx A-Y

  • The A-Y of Manx is an artwork in the paving in Regent Street at the heart of the Isle of Man’s capital, Douglas. Each letter has come from a narrative of fact or folklore, geography or ecology – all coming together to compose a fascinating picture of the Isle of Man today.

    The artwork illustrates 24 subjects related to the Isle of Man, some of which are well-known and obvious such as “Manx Cats”, “TT” and “Kippers” and some which are a little more obscure such as the “Giant Elk” and “Ogham”.

    This is a BCA Landscape  & Smiling Wolf collaboration
