No man is an island
"No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.(...) Any man's death diminishes me because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee." John Donne, London (1572 - 1631)
Lighthousekeepers tried to hide the rusty barbed wire from the Second World War in the nature around Littleisland Lighthouse. But it wouldn't let itself be ignored. Through extensive voluntary work it has therefore been turned into a globe for pondering. A globe you may view from afar or go inside to watch the world through.
