Bronze animal sculpture trail arrives in Knightsbridge

Published June 2024

Nine bronze anthropomorphic sculptures created by British and Australian artists, Gillie and Marc, have appeared on the streets around Knightsbridge as part of a free art trail.

You may have seen them before elsewhere, as Gillie and Marc are if nothing but very prolific and their animals tend to crop up all over the place. This summer their project ‘A Wild Life for Wildlife’ will roam the Brompton Road and King’s Road in partnership with the Zoological Society of London (ZSL).

Taking a seat on a tandem bike in Royal Avenue, joining game of chess or throwing a ball in a pool encourages families to become a part of the journey with endangered animals. It allows them to learn and understand why each of these species is in trouble.
