    The present lot includes a study that Paolozzi did as a ceiling design for Cleish Castle. In the early 1970s Paolozzi had been commissioned by Michael Spen to design nine relief panels for a ceiling at Cleish Castle in Kinross-shire. Made of fibreglass moulded with aluminium elements to create a shimmering effect, these are now in the Collection of the National Gallery of Scotland.
