Symbolic Socks

Symbolic SocksSome of the objects being brought into ‘Things’ are potently symbolic. One such an example is a pair of red inter-generational socks brought into the museum this morning. The owner described how the socks, originally belonging to her Father, took on special significance after his death. These socks not only have a rich past but promise an exciting future: they will be worn by the owner on a charity run.

  1. Thanks so much for featuring my socks! But just in case anyone reads this and expects too much from me, the socks and I won’t be running but will be long distance walking. You can read more about my challenge on my blog which is linked to this comment.
