If you find yourself needing to do something on your lunch break, well, in this case, evening break, we suggest our London readers head over to the St Pancras Station to see the fantastic public art sculpture work by Studio Orta, Cloud I Meteros. The piece depicts gray characters atop two white clouds.

From the Studio Orta site:

"Meteoros is a word derived from ancient Greek, meaning raised from the ground, suspended, lofty or in the midst. Clouds have long been intercessors between reality and the imagination, between heaven and earth, lightness and gravity. They inhabit the skies of Renaissance fresco paintings, often depicted crowded with laymen and prophets, angels and deities. Throughout history, this celestial vault has been a site of conviviality, of learning and exchange."
