Grayson Perry Map silk scarf (British Museum exclusive)
Members' price *
This bright silk scarf portrays a personal map of the British Museum as seen through the eyes of the artist Grayson Perry, taken from the award-winning exhibition Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman (Winner of the South Bank Sky Arts Awards 2012 for Visual Art).
'When working with the British Museum for my exhibition, The Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman, I became very aware of the huge scope and scale of the institution. This map scarf is perhaps a very personal guide to the spirit of the place. I have characterised the museum here as a slightly tyrannical monster not unlike my dear old Teddy Bear, Alan Measles. I think of the BM as a friendly giant. He can get grouchy and cynical at times as he is constantly being besieged by visitors wielding cameras but above all it is a place of wonder and beauty and learning.'
