Isn’t he fab?

April 21, 2011

I love foxes, which is probably why I don’t get too het up at the fact we have a whole family living next door to us (although they can get very noisy at night).

So I was delighted when they started putting up this giant sculpture near Waterloo Bridge this week. I walk past him every morning so it’s been fascinating see him take shape…

Isn’t he fab? His name is Urban Fox. I particularly love his eyes.

*Urban Fox is part of the Southbank Festival of Britain.
