The wiseman’s robe made out of used tea bags was created by Julia Browne and will be appearing – appropriately – outside Tea Monkey Café, in Midsummer Place on Saturday (December 22).
It is part of the nomadic Following.the.star project which explores themes of advent and Christmas. Local artists are displaying their creations around the city centre until Monday.
Tea Monkey founder, Tracey Bovingdon, said: “This artwork encourages passersby to remember the more important things about Christmas. It’s easy to get stressed by the amount of shopping that has to be done but it’s equally as important to spend time with your friends and family.
“At Tea Monkey we like to remind people to take a moment out of their busy day to have a chat and enjoy the world around them. The idea behind this arty installation matches our values and we are very happy to be involved with the project to provide a relaxing environment to soak up the artwork and our tea!”
