The Left Lion of Nottingham’s Old Market Square Gets Yarn Bombed!

In 2013, James Clay spied this amazing yarn bomb on his lunch hour in Nottingham’s Old Market Square so he took a photo. And I do love this photo — amazing work James!

The yarn bomb was mounted on the iconic Left Lion by textile design student, Nikki Charlesworth. Inspired by Olek and her yarn bomb of the Charging Bull on Wall Street, you can read more about Nikki’s feat via BBC News.
