2nd photograph;The sculpture is 'Turtle Storm' (1986) by Joseph Ingleby and is made of forged steel. Donated to Thamesdown Council as a gift from the Dufty family in 1995 and sited in Queens Park, Swindon, Wiltshire. The work was originally purchased for Kelmscott Manor, Oxfordshire, the country home of William Morris, in 1989. In 1995 the decision was taken to limit artefacts at the house and grounds to those created in Morris's lifetime (1834-96).
Thank you so much for adding the history of the sculpture in Queen's Park.Regards,Benoit
