Kent Museum Update – of mice and rice

Well the Rangoli design at the Kent Museum was more popular than we first thought – not only with the viewing public, but with the local mice population. After the first 24 hours, a few grains of rice had gone missing. By day 7 over half the Rangoli had disappeared. (see image below). And within 14 days, all 10-15 lbs of rice had been taken away for safe-keeping. All that remained was a small trail of bright pink grains leading into a hole in the fireplace. I was interested to see that the orange rice was the most popular, the natural white grains being the least. To think that nature had indeed removed the Rangoli in its own sweet way was quite thrilling.
