Many Moons shows the phases of the moon at the Autumnal Equinox from 23 September 2018 to 22 September 2019. Three hundred and sixty five individual moons, waxing and waning from sickle sliver to full, silvery disc. Seen en masse they allow us to reflect on the cycle of change and repetition through the course of a year.

Traditional folklore has assigned magical properties to the moon in its changing phases: tales of werewolves and madness and the female goddess.  To these, we can now add tales of engineering and scientific achievement, celebrated in this anniversary year of the moon landings.

Take time to gaze at the moon and weave your own magical stories in the silence and stillness of the Savage Tower.
