A Didcot school is the proud owner of a chandelier with a twist, thanks to an artist and an ancient mirror.
Aureus School, which opened in September, teamed up with Lorna Carmen McNeill to produce the curious artwork as part of its arts-based Light Up Your Life project.
The venture was based on the Didcot Mirror, one of only 18 of its kind unearthed, which was found in the area and dates to the 1st Century BC.
Children at the Great Western Park school were asked to contribute a piece for the chandelier to highlight what excites them most and lights up their life.
The end product, which hangs proudly in the school’s assembly hall, included bright objects of all shapes and sizes that will ‘illuminate and inspire everyone in the school’.
Mirror discs were worked into the chandelier artwork to connect it back to the Iron Age mirror.
Sun discs were also included in recognition of the Aureus School logo and the golden Roman coins found in the school grounds.
Headteacher Hannah Wilson said: “It is really quite special to have a stunning piece of artwork made by our founding students hanging above our heads in our main hall.”
