We were in central London last week filming some of John W. Mills’ sculptures for our forthcoming profile film. It was amazing how many people cross the Millennium Bridge from and to The Tate Gallery. The National Fire Fighters’ memorial always attracts a crowd who seem moved by the enormity of those who have given their lives in the Fire Service.
We then filmed an equally evocative thought provoking sculpture in Whitehall: The Women of World War II. It is situated near Downing Street and stands tall and proud as the tourists, taxis, and buses thunder by. Even if you’ve seen it before you cannot help but be drawn to the large bronze sculpture. It shows various types of clothing worn by women serving their country during World War II hanging on pegs representing the diversity of women who served.
