普爾:海洋生物壁畫慶祝水族館創建者

一幅慶祝海洋生物學家的壁畫已被畫在一個沿海城市的一家商店的側面。

菲利普-亨利-高斯(Philip Henry Gosse)在19世紀成長並探索多塞特郡普爾(Poole)周圍的海洋生物,將他的發現按比例繪製成圖。

他想出了 "水族館 "這個詞,並於1853年在倫敦攝政公園創建了第一個玻璃公共水族館。

這件藝術品橫跨高街58號的三層樓,將於稍後揭幕。

它描繪了一條魚、一隻螃蟹和一隻水母,由當地藝術家Ricky Also歷時四天繪製而成。

他說。他說:"高斯創造了這麼多美麗的藝術品,很容易將它們拼湊起來,為牆壁創造一個新的構圖。

"通過重現高斯的藝術作品,儘可能忠實於他的作品,但其規模是以前從未見過的,我們在一個環境中展示它們,就像它們首次出版時出現在人類觀眾面前時那樣陌生。"

2021年,在他的故居附近的斯金納街教堂為紀念戈斯而揭幕了一塊藍牌。


A mural to celebrate a marine biologist has been painted on the side of a shop in a coastal town.

Philip Henry Gosse grew up and explored the sea-life around Poole, Dorset, in the 1800s, creating scale drawings of his finds.

He came up with the word "aquarium" and created the first glass public aquarium in Regent's Park in London in 1853.

The artwork, spanning three storeys on 58 High Street, is set to be unveiled later.

Depicting a fish, a crab and a jellyfish, it has been painted over four days by local artist Ricky Also.

He said: "Gosse created so much beautiful artwork it was easy to piece it together to create a new composition for the wall.

"By recreating Gosse's artworks, as true to his as possible but at a scale they have never been seen before, we're showing them in an environment that is as alien as they would have appeared to human audiences when first published."

A blue plaque was unveiled at Skinner Street Church, near his former home, to commemorate Gosse in 2021.
