150-year-old underground with 150 million-year-old limestone Part 2

Look at the above image. Yeah, that’s the close-up of 150 million-year-old limestone as we mentioned yesterday. The edges are rounded, as sharp edges do not appear naturally, or if they do, they do not remain sharp for long. The rounded edges also emphasize the stone’s massive structure optically.
The station’s low walls have a wave-like flush-work at the top reflecting the oceans from whence the animals came.

Movement in the water is also projected on the floor where eddies are reflected in stone. They are meant to remind the beholder of the water reservoirs which existed there in the 18th century, a well-liked place for an afternoon stroll. The stone used for flooring and plinth is Kemnay granite from Scotland.
Albion Stone supplied the stone. Realization by Szerelmey Company.
We were delighted by the artistic idea and found the impressions at night glowing with neon light most fascinating, almost surreal. Photos can be seen in a blog (see below). But we were surprised at the comment about ?onion rings and orange peels on the walls“.

Obviously some do not know much about natural stone and its provenance. London’s “Tube” was the first ever underground train. It has a railway network of some 402 km with 270 stations and 11 lines. Some 3.7 million passengers use it every day.
Since the beginning of the 20th century the “Art on the Underground”-program has been sponsoring artists like John Maine for their work on London’s underground stations, here in particular Green Park station.
