Throwback Thursday: Hyde Park Sculptures

There are many interesting sculptures in London’s Hyde Park and the two below are simply those that I took a quick detour to investigate while on my way from Marble Arch Tube to Tyburn Convent.

The first is the striking sculpture of a horse’s head called Still Water. Made by Nic Fiddian-Green in bronze it is an impressive 33 foot high and at its unveiling in 2010 it was the largest freestanding bronze sculpture in London.

The second sculpture, which was I gather only a temporary fixture and has since been removed is called Brothers and was sculpted by David Breuer-Weil. Apparently it is meant to explore connectedness and togetherness, in the artist’s own words, “a physical embodiment of the joining of minds”.
