Exactly one year after the launch of a Crowdfunder appeal, the Jack Leslie Campaign has announced that Monumental Icons and our sculptor Andy Edwards has won the bid to design and produce a statue of Jack Leslie
Whilst Monumental Icons’ own sculptor, Andy Edwards, has been responsible for creating activist Frederick Douglass, boxer Muhammad Ali, footballer Pelé and artist/actor Paul Leroy Robeson, findings in a BBC study within the UK were far from conclusive.
We always advocate that each piece we create needs to have far more relevance than simply being a statue that commemorates a person or a moment in time.
On Thursday 10 December, Leeds Cares and Garry McBride unveiled the highly anticipated bust of Captain Sir Tom Moore in the Bexley Wing at St James Hospital, Leeds.
We are proposing the creation of a sculpture to not only celebrate the successes of Lewis but to also recognise the institutions which helped make this incredible achievement possible.
