Skanderbeg

Bust of George Kastrioti Skanderbeg by Kreshnik Xhiku, 2012
Lady Samuel's Gardens, Inverness Terrace, Bayswater
London, September 2014

“Around 150 people brought traffic to a standstill yesterday when they gathered to see the launch of the latest contribution to Westminster’s City of Sculpture initiative. A bust of Albanian national hero Skanderbeg was jointly unveiled by Cllr Robert Davis, Westminster City Council’s Cabinet Member for the Built Environment and the Albanian Charge d’affaires, Mal Berisha. The bust was inaugurated at Inverness Terrace in Bayswater to mark the 100th anniversary of Albanian independence as police halted traffic and Albanians gathered to cheer.”
