‘Ad Astra!’ - New Silk Tie by David A. Hardy
This new tie by David A. Hardy is based upon his painting, ‘Ad Astra!’, which was commissioned by the BIS to replace his ‘Moon to Mars’ painting in the BIS Lecture Room. The latter, kindly loaned to the BIS, was sold in February 2014.
With the Moon in the foreground and the whole Galaxy in the background, David has cleverly incorporated the two major design studies undertaken by BIS since its inception: a manned ‘Moonship’ in the 1930s and an unmanned interstellar spacecraft ‘Daedalus’ in the 1970s. A stylised rocket/spaceship is shooting past the moon and on to the distant stars. The rocket and the three bright stars are easily recognisable as the BIS logo.
Further items using this same design, such as aprons and ladies scarves, are being considered.
