In the garden we are going to have a female sculpture who represents an ideal of humanity/ guardian of the environment. She will be sitting overlooking our wave sculpture; the idea being that she is keeping watch over our tumultuous world ready to cope and adapt to any waves of change.
Yesterday, I met the highly talented artist Nikki Taylor who is going to sculpt our figure using copper mesh (www.nikkitaylorsculpture.com). I also met her beautiful model Connie who will be immortalised in the form of sculpture. After much positioning, prodding and pushing limbs around, we found the perfect pose which we liked to call relaxed poised.
It's funny though, the sculpture started life as the 'Guardian of the Environment' and then became the 'Ideal of Humanity'. She's now called Connie
