A Laughing Pomegranate by Rachel Gundry

A Laughing Pomegranate by Rachel Gundry


Rachel Gundry has carved a quote from The Masnawi, Book one, verse 721, by Jalal al-Din Rumi, into Armagh pink marble. ‘The laughing pomegranate brings glory to the garden.’ The Persian calligraphy is by Mr. Ali. Mahvelati (Script: Siyah Mashgh.)


16 artists were invited to the Chelsea Physic Garden to acquaint them with the unique, historic garden. They responded to the Gardens’ 2018 theme of ‘Beverages Bubbles and Brews’ with proposals for standing stones and sculptures, sundials and ornaments with witty and wise inscriptions of poetry, drinking songs and recipes. 

Inspired by the myriad of plants that are the ingredients in teas and tisanes, wines, cordials, beers and herbal brews, ‘An Elixir of Letters’ slakes  the thirst of art lovers and gardening enthusiasts alike.

The exhibition occupies spaces throughout Chelsea Physic Garden from May to October 2018.
