Love from Above - a Dinky story of unexpected love
The Supreme Leader contacted us with a most-important mission. Apparently, we’re all a bit polarised, entrenched into our own echo chambers, unwilling to see things from another point of view.
So we reasoned that if we could encourage two polar opposites with diametrically opposing opposite oppositions to get along, or possibly even fall in love, we’d show that if these two can set aside their differences, then anyone else surely must be able to.
So watch the video to hear the story of how Mr. D Mon and Angela met.
On a technical note:
This door has been a challenge in so many ways. It’s been one that’s really tested our maker skills, with a solid hardwood arch that aims to directly replicate the fabulous stone arch and ancient doors of the building it rests up against - Whewells Court of Trinity College, Cambridge. We’re also ever mindful of how to securely attach parts of it that can stand the wear and tear associated with being installed on the mean streets of Cambridge. We didn’t want Mr Mon’s trident to go walkies…
We also want to make very clear, that like all our doors, we don’t ever attach them into any part of the building. We know this is a cherished piece of incredible architecture and we must leave it unscathed. We always look for patches of repair concrete in the pavement to attach into, so should we ever need to vacate, we only need to fill a dinky spot of concrete to hide any trace we were ever there.
Here’s a couple more pics, briefly snapped!
If you like what we do, and want to help support our dinky mission to *SAVE THE WORLD*, take a peek at our Patreon page. Public street art is hard because you don’t have customers. And to reach the most people it’s put into a public space for free.
BUT… for the cost of a cup of tea, you can effectively buy a bit of public art. Instead of it being just for you home though, it’s in public where EVERYONE, including you, gets to see and hopefully enjoy it. You can be directly responsible for making the world more joyful and delighting young, old, rich and poor.
We’d be enormously grateful for your support - helping to cover the costs of making these Dinky Doors.

Thank you for being lovely.
