Following an extension from the original closing date, the installation of 1000 tear bottles in Chichester Cathedral has now come to an end. The visitors’ book demonstrated the very powerful response from all who experienced it. Here are just a few of those comments:
Very beautiful, peaceful.
Tear bottle installation is emotional reminding us of so much war and sadness in the modern world.
Very exquisite and touching
Tears mean anguish, pain and suffering which is sometimes never healed.
Simple, beautiful, Radiant.
A beautiful river of tear bottles very movingly displayed.
Beautiful, all so different. Very evocative.
I am often moved to tears. It was an encouragement to be reminded of the power of them. Thank you!
Very beautiful and interesting
