Still Water

Still Water by Nic Fiddian-Green, Marble Arch, London
Still Water” by Nic Fiddian-Green, 2011
Marble Arch, City of Westminster
London, September 2015

“An artist who crafted a sculpture of a horse's head in central London was so distressed at the local pigeons making a mess of his landmark he has climbed the 35ft high structure to clean it himself. Nic Fiddian-Green is known the world over for his incredible signature sculptures of horses inspired by his own chestnut hunter George. His bronze horse creation Still Water is now a permanent feature in Marble Arch but it appears the pigeons loved it as much as London sightseers - leaving the prominent statue in need of a spring clean.”
