Tour de France commission

My sculpture series The Stars Which Know No Destruction was commissioned by East Street Arts and funded by Leeds City Council for the Tour de France Grand Depart on July 6.  The life-sized sculptures were inspired by Leeds City Museum’s egyptology collection and were displayed in window fronts along the tour route, part of East Street Arts’ Tour de Social event.  The two smaller figures fit inside two sarcophagus-shaped pieces, merging the idea of Egyptian burial practice with contemporary packaging design.

The sculpture series was purchased in 2017 by the University of Southampton for permanent display in their Archaeology Department.  Click here for more info.
