Fortnum & Mason - Christmas Windows 2016 -The home of Christmas since 1707

A series of nine stories detail the partnerships of classic arch-enemies with charming outcomes: like The Bull and The China, The Butcher and The Turkey, The Wolf and The Sheep, and The Boy and the Brussel Sprouts.  

Each story, specially illustrated by artist Brett Ryder, has been expertly hand-sculpted into 3D versions, which were then intricately painted by theatre makeup artists. A secondary story lives subtly in each window, with mice appearing around these exquisite sculptures, having their own Christmas moment. Continuing into the store itself, the Atrium sees a giant sun and moon meeting in an embrace.
