Whimsical Wednesday

Eduardo Paolozzi

Every Wednesday I’m posting a photograph which highlights the whimsical nature of London. As a tour guide, I get to see a lot of astonishing things while researching my walks and I will use this blog series as a means of sharing these sights with you.

Used as a temporary exhibition space by St James’s resident art galleries, I was delighted to encounter three large-scale sculptures made by Eduardo Paolozzi during my last visit. Exhibited by Bowman Sculpture, the artwork depicted here is known as ‘Trishula’ and was made by the artist in 1966.
