Michael Linton and his daughter, Rachael, are reflected in their mural of the Bayeux tapestry, which tells the story of the Norman conquest of England. The mural, which is on display at Science Alive, in Christchurch, took Michael Linton 25 years to make using nearly two million pieces of metal, each measuring 2mm by 3mm, which he then hand-painted. Rachael Linton helped research the history of the period.
