Solar Sculpture

This is the sculpture outside the main entrance of the Hay Festival this year. It has little solar panels on it, so that it lights up at night, and is meant to demonstrate what a solar power project in Kenya can do to change people's lives there. Kerosene lamps are widely used there, and the fumes can cause health problems - and clean solar lighting means that students can finish their homework after it goes dark, and so on.
