Seeds of a great artwork.

GUESTS arriving for an awards ceremony at Jaguar's plant in Allesley feasted their eyes on a piece of artwork that was good enough to eat.

The car giant commissioned artist Ranbir Kaur to weave her magic in the main reception area at Brown's Lane using the Indian technique of rangoli.

Her creation, made from seeds and pulses, took two days to put together ahead of the annual Jaguar-sponsored arts and business awards.

Les Ratcliffe, from Jaguar, said the design was a focus of interest for many of the guests, adding that the rangoli display was something that illustrated the "coming together" theme chosen for the evening.

Almost 300 people attended the awards, held to reward the efforts of West Midlands business people who donate their expertise to arts organisations.

And, despite the hours of work that went into making it, the floor design was only temporary and was cleared away soon afterwards.
