Originally named Bedlam, as an English abbreviation of Bethlehem or ‘house of bread’, the word has became attributed to the confinement of 'lunatics', and the colloquial understanding of it as a ‘house of confusion’ and uproar. This image is recorded within the walls of a garden specially created for the patients of the Maudsley Psychiatric Hospital, London.
