“Wonder is a meditative moving sculpture that aims to show how everything is interconnected.” – Tom Lawton, artist.

Wonder’s mesmerising cycles can be seen to reflect the eternal cycles of life, echoing Avebury, the stone circles, and its exceptional story through time – connecting the past with the present and with hope for the future.
