The statue in the centre of the picture was a piece by Jonathan Hateley at the Surrey Sculpture Society. He said (on the sign next to the statue that’s not in the picture) that he wanted to “combine the story of Madame Butterfly, an opera I’d seen many times over the years, with the well-known cherry blossom of Japan.”
The entire sculpture was created by someone from the Surrey Sculpture Society and it was Eve looking to the right holding an apple.
I walked past the first statue (the bronze one in the foreground) and saw the fossil one (the grey one in the background) and thought that the two combined would make a good picture. After many attempts at getting the right angle, I finally got the perfect picture.
The bronze statue was designed and built by Bernard Miles Peterson, and the fossil-like sculpture designed and built by Lou Sainty, both from the Surrey Sculpture Society.
