'Mad Hatter' and 'Queen of Hearts', 1994
Retail Park, Queens Road
Retail Park, Queens Road. (A-Z
p 99 5F)
Stone carved Queen of Hearts, character
from Alice in Wonderland.
Stadium Developers, the same company
as at Meadowhall Retail Park where Bermejo's 'Marble
Players' are located.
Originally the developers hoped
for four pieces, two larger than those completed, unfortunately budget restrictions
intervened. The choice of subject was suggested by the artist. The figures
were carved on site, in one of the then-empty retail outlets.
