Royal Beasts

Sculptress Kendra Haste has been awarded the commission to create 13 life-sized animals for the exhibition Royal Beasts, which Historic Royal Palaces will show in the Tower of London in May 2011. Kendra uses steel armatures and painted galvanised wire to create her sculptures. As one of the commissioned works is an elephant, she will be a busy artist preparing for the exhibition. Royal Beasts is designed to illustrate the history of the Royal Menagerie, which entertained British royalty and their guests from the 1100's to 1831-2, when the remaining animals were moved to Regents Park to help establish London Zoo.
