Where: Queen Elizabeth II Stadium, Stratford, London.
What: Marc Quinn’s : Alison Lapper Pregnant at the closing ceremony for the London Paralympic games.
This statue immortalised the artist, whilst pregnant with her son Parris. A historic moment within a historic moment, a symbol of determination, love and equality. I was drawn to it when the fanfare ended and we roamed the stadium not wanting to come down from the high that had been a wonderful celebration of one of the best summer’s of our lives.
