Dimensions: 2.43m, 1.22m, 1.22m
Acquired: 1985

This work represents the children's story 'Little Prince' by Antoine de Saint Exupery in sculptural form. The tree, the outline of the asteroid and the pyramid which all make up elements of the tale can be seen as you start to imagine the story through the sculpture.

Jane Ackroyd specialises in both abstract and figurative steel sculpture. She studied at St.Martins College and subsequently the Royal College of Art and has numerous awards and successful public and private commissions.
