Throwback Thursday: Jete by Enzo Plazzotta

This striking sculpture called Jete can be found at 48 Millbank, not far from Tate Britain. Enzo Plazzotta based the figure on David Wall who became the youngest male Principal in the history of The Royal Ballet.

Born in Italy, Plazotta studied sculpture until the Second World War broke out at which point he became a Partisan leader fighting against the Nazis. After the war he moved to London and stayed there, though still kept links with his homeland.
