Sculpture in St James's Park!

Sculpture in St James's Park!

Sitting in St James’s Park outside Buckingham Palace as part of LHQ Summer Trail with London Heritage Quarter + Artiq. The crown is one of eleven sculptures commissioned to commemorate the National Gallery’s 200th birthday.

This sculpture is dressed in an array of colours to represent the flora and fauna alongside our urban landscape. The layered and textured colours that make up the crown, an iconic symbol of the United Kingdom, also tell the story of the wonderful mix of culture and values that shape our society. Each individual visiting this sculpture has been on a unique journey, adding the very intricacy to the United Kingdom that this artwork represents.
