Flying Fish: Pisces Sculpture, Harlow by Jesse Watkins-
Jesse Watkins was part of the new generation of British sculptors working in the 1960s. His Pisces sculpture, created in 1973, rises from the water gardens of Harlow Town park in Essex, which were created by converting a watercress bed. Watkins had several public commissions throughout his career, one of which was for The Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead, which is similar to Pisces but is finished in stainless steel.
