Christine’s ‘Make a Difference’ portrait sculpture of Greta Thunberg for Winchester University, which is one of the greenest universities in the country. The sculpture will stand outside the state-of-the-art ‘West Downs Centre’ which has amazing sustainable features including a combined heat and power plant, heat recovery systems, rainwater harvesting, a green roof and solar photovoltaic panels. Standing on a large piece of Purbeck stone, Christine has depicted Greta with one foot over the edge and her body showing her vulnerability and shyness. However, Greta is a confident speaker and has managed to overcome her fears and problems, so her face shows determination. Christine hopes that this sculpture will be an inspiration to other young students to ‘make a difference’ and to persevere in overcoming problems in their own lives.
Christine is extremely proud and honoured to have been chosen to create this important sculpture, which will be unveiled on Tuesday 30th March 2021.
