The following 17 sculptures were all carved in a day each with chainsaws. The wood had been sited in ten different London Parks before my arrival and each carving is now permanently sited there for a lasting legacy to the Olympic Games that took place in our capital. I approachd the whole project with immense respect and enthusiasm for the sporting spectacle that we were all experiencing and legacy to the games was at the heart of this sculpture gift that I have made to the city of London...I hope they are enjoyed and inspire our and future generations to come.
