In Highgate village we have a vet – a very nice vet. Friendly, sensible, down to earth, kindly – and with the a fine artistic/theatrical flair.
Instead of filling the lovely bow window of his shop with bags of pet foods and fluffy coats or collars, each month he uses small models and puppets to create scenes depicting current events. During the American election it was Trump and Biden – as of this week it is a Christmas scene. But last month he laid out in the window a series of random COVID-inspired musings donated by the people of Highgate.
Christmas has now taken their place, but I hope he has the museum’s contents stashed away carefully for the time when the pandemic is only memory.
