At less than one metre tall, four-year-old Lauren Batty was in the company of giants when she was one of the first people to see a massive sculpture arriving in Harrogate for the start of England’s premier agricultural event, the Great Yorkshire Show.
For the second year running, the Yorkshire Agricultural Society has teamed up with Yorkshire Sculpture Park to bring two iconic sculptures to the three-day show, which begins on Tuesday.
British-born artist Marcia Farquhar’s The Horse Is A Noble Animal stands 3.5m tall.
Joining the giant wooden rocking horse on the President’s Lawn is artist Sophie Ryder’s Pink Lady Hare Dancing With Big Brown Dog.
Nigel Pulling, chief executive of the society, said “The sculptures proved incredibly popular last year and these two pieces of art are equally as eye catching.”
