She has previously completed similar works on Ghandi, Nelson Mandela, Pablo Picasso and Mother Teresa, as well as a number of wildlife bronzes. Helena, who was the guest speaker, gave an interesting talk on how the life sized bronze sculpture was created. The sculpture now stands proudly on the Great House lawn looking out towards the sea.
