Award-winning sculpture to be unveiled at Spitalfields
A GOAT sculpture which won a prestigious arts prize will be unveiled at one of the East End’s most famous spots tomorrow (January 20).
Kenny Hunter’s 3.5 metre design, I Goat won the Spitalfields Sculpture Prize and will be erected at Bishops Square.
Some 70,000 people a week will see the artwork, which was inspired by the waves of migration that have found sanctuary in Spitalfields over the decades and helped shape the East End.
The sculpture is also an image of sacrifice, reflecting how each group of immigrants faced their own form of conflict, oppression and poverty.
The Scottish sculptor won the �45,000 commission on the votes of judges and the public.
