The Cosmic Egg
May 17 @ 9:00 am - September 23 @ 5:00 pm
From the 19 February to 23 September 2018 visitors to Buckland Abbey in Devon will find something unexpected in the Great Barn this year. Sitting in the middle of the floor will be an enormous, glittering egg, created by sculptor and artist, Andrew Logan. Usually on display at the Andrew Logan Museum of Sculpture in Wales, the Cosmic Egg this is a rare chance for visitors to Buckland Abbey to see this beautiful piece. The egg reflects themes of creation, contemplation and spirituality. As a focus for reflection it seems right to host the Cosmic Egg in a place chosen over 700 years ago by Cistercian monks as perfect for prayer and contemplation.The egg is the universal symbol of the life principle and the mirrored shell of this egg represents cosmic time and space swirling to reflect the world today.
