Royal Beasts Sculptures

Almost two years ago I reported that Kendra Haste had won the commission to create 13 life-sized animal sculptures for the exhibition Royal Beasts in the Tower of London to illustrate the history of the Royal Menagerie (CLICK). The beasts to be sculpted included a life-sized elephant! Her work has been nominated for the 2012 Marsh Award for Excellence in Public Sculpture, sponsored by the Marsh Christian Trust and administered by the UK Public Monuments and Sculpture Association (PMSA). The prize is a piddling £1,750, but the prestige of winning this award is enormous (CLICK). Above is a glimpse of her Male Lion and Stalking Lioness at the Tower. The winner will be announced later this year.

They look very realistic. Far too small a prize. Good luck to all the entrants.

You can't enter. You have to be nominated.
