The Lion - New Sculpture in Chinatown
Apologies for the poor quality of these images - taken with my phone. The Lion is above Little Wu restaurant on the corner of Shaftesbury Avenue and Wardour Street. In the bottom picture you can see (L-R) Someone from Shaftesbury PLC, David Tse of Chinatown Arts Space, artists Hsiao-Chi Tsai and Kimiya Yoshikawa, the Mayor of Westminster and Christine Yau from the London Chinatown Association.
I thought the new sculpture looked pretty good. I was worried before that it would be a bit cliche but actually it was quite contemporary and apporpriate for the space. So look up when you're on Shaftesbury Avenue!
