Lord Napier Decorated!

Author - Anne Parsons

Sculpture student Eleonora Aguiari from the Royal College of Art, London, wrapped a statue of Lord Napier of Magdala in red tape as part of her end of year show. She said that whilst working in her studio she often looked out at the statue, which is situated at the top of Queen's Gate, very close to the college building, but that very few people in the street appeared to notice it. She hoped that by wrapping it in red tape people would see it in a new light.
