This knight has been designed with the clients that use The Nomad Trust shelter. These service users are homeless and wanted to give an insight into what this means. The colourful design leads up to the colours of The Nomad Trust and is based on maps. This could be interpreted as the streets they walk on or the map of how they got to where they are now. It is a spectrum of colours to represent how everyone and their stories are so different. The knight has messages from the service users who are or have been homeless in Lincoln.
