Shortly before Christmas I was approached by The Jockey Club who where helping to create The Peter O’Sullevan Community Hub at Aintree Racecourse, an onsite community facility designed to focus and teach the community about horse-racing, the Grand National and Jockey Club roots.
I was commissioned to produce this 1 1/2 size bust of Sir Peter which is located in the entrance hall of the new facility to greet visitors.
A unique feature of the statue is the use of a recorded message which will play when a button in the plinth is pressed. Created by friend and impressionist Rory Bremner the message captures Sir Peters unique voice and sense of humour.
You can get a flavour of how this will sound by visiting the following link and listening to Rory’s audio recording at Sir peters Memorial Service.http://www.thevoiceofracing.com/
