We’re very proud to have been given permission to share this piece of work. It’s by Street Artist Nyces and was created last year as part of a project in Peterborough for the Diaspora Arts and Education Charity. This has come to reflect other issues arising during lockdown, being used across the world to support the Black Lives Matter movement. As a neighbouring artist, and someone we’ve known for many years, we wanted to share his work and this work in particular for the times we’re going through. See more of his work on the “Nearby” pages and on Facebook here
It is displayed in the Minecraft map next to Museum Square and the Church. This space would be perfect for artwork in real life having “blind” windows and a large wall area. The museum is the home of Thomas Clarkson’s story, the abolitionist who worked all his life against slavery.

Paul tells us:
I make stained glass panels for fun and as a hobbyist.
I live in Guyhirn having moved here from Peterborough 2 years ago.
My inspiration for undertaking stained glass work was a desire to make something as inspiring as much of the work seen in religious contexts and or museums such as the National Stained Glass Museum at Ely. I have had to teach myself many new skills, not the least of which is accuracy in glass cutting, soldering and also design work. Lately I have started to paint glass and also stain it.
The images with the yellow colours use stain, not paint, so at least I can say i have made “real” stained glass.
