BUSINESSES in Chester are invited to be part of a right royal Chester celebration.
Helsby-born artist and sculptor, Nick Elphick, commissioned to sculpt a 5 ft high giant head of Queen’ Elizabeth II for next year’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations, is offering local companies the chance to display a copy of the head at their shops, offices and local communities.
Elphick, who prepared the original sculpted model of the Her Majesty’s head for moulding and casting, is overseeing the production of 60 replicas in preparation for a county-wide giant display in 2012.
“My work is not about a likeness but a representation of the Queen throughout her career, something that every person recognises as representative of our Monarch and captures her pride and ours in her,” he said.
Project director Kristine Szulik added: “This is a chance for people and businesses in Cheshire to celebrate her Diamond Jubilee year. We will have 60 replicas of the Queen’s head available and invite businesses, villages and communities.”
