This large bronze sculpture was produced originally for the Festival of Britain and sponsored by the Lockhead Hydraulic Brake Company.
It was cast by Galizia Foundry - Battersea, London. The model was Joyce Odiase. The National Portrait Gallery have acquired two photos of Fleischmann working on the sculpture with Joyce Odiase modelling. The photos can be found here
After the Festival the bronze statue was transported to Leamington Spa and erected at the Lockhead Brake Factory head office in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, England. It became a permanent feature and symbol of the area.
The sculpture was still working as a fountain gushing water from the mouths of the fish and turtle right up until it was stolen from the site in December 2001. If you have any information on it's whereabouts, please contact FineArtFacts immediately.
