Photographer's Note

Sculpture in Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth, Hampshire

Jubilee Sculpture 2002 by Vivien Mallock. Unveiled by Her Majesty the Queen on 27th June 2002. The sculpture shows the prow of the Royal Yacht Britannia, with the future represented by a small boy seated at its base. The base itself evokes the round Tower, which guards the entrance to the Harbour. Apparently.

I was taken not so much by the quality of the artwork, as by the juxtaposition of the young smiling girl and the bronze boy, studiedly ignoring her.
