Déjà vu 2022

Brooches made for the Bowen Galleries 40th anniversary show. The brooches depict the night sky as seen in Wellington on 13 September 1981 (when the gallery first opened) and on 13 September 2021 (Bowen’s 40th anniversary). The view is virtually identical. The main difference is that in 2021 Saturn and Jupiter are visible (as highlighted on the brooch back).
