There seems to be a lot of art exhibitions in London this year, and I’m always up to see people’s artistic expressions. I heard about the Gratitude trail and thought the idea of decorating statues to acknowledge key workers and pay tribute to the NHS was really nice and needed, especially after all the hard work they have put in over what has been a really tough year or so.
The statues were place in the courtyard of Southwark cathedral in aesthetically pleasing neat rows.
Here are some closer pictures of some of them. Most of them were really colourful. I thought the bubblegum machine and ballerina ones were fun.
I really liked this blue and white one. It reminds me of the pattern you find on traditional English china.
I had a look around, some were amusing, and others had a lot of detail on them.
I also liked this one with the head the shape of a bottle pump, something I’m sure we’ve all become more familiar with.
It didn’t take too long to have a look around. I really enjoyed the statues and how they were all creatively decorated, and for a great cause too.
