To commemorate the centenary of the end of The First World War, students and staff from Canterbury School of Visual Arts at Canterbury College (CSVA), in partnership with The Canterbury Journey, are to create a large-scale wooden horse for Canterbury Cathedral Precincts. The Canterbury War Horse's head is bowed in respect, facing oncoming visitors to the cathedral.
It aims to encapsulate symbols of resilience, struggle, peace and solemnity. The horse is sculpted from repurposed materials supplied by Jacksons Fencing, the poppies at the horse's feet are made from discarded plastic bottles.
Please visit canterbury-cathedral.org for opening times. Usual precinct charges apply.
