Eros Goes Globe-al

London’s symbol of love and desire, Eros (Cupid to the Romans), is spending the festive season inside a giant snow globe.

This large christmas decoration measures 15 metres in diameter, has 2 fans to keep it inflated and 8 snow blowing machines to create the requisite blizzard.  Base included, it stands as tall as a 5 storey building.

The purpose is not entirely decorative, mind you.  Poor old Eros, god of love, becomes the target of festive revellers each year, and this is a creative way of providing some protection, much better than last year when he was simply shrouded in advertising hoardings.
