"Talking Statues is a very clever imaginative way to bring statues to life. I've animated things throughout my career, from Spitting Image onwards. On this occasion, I've animated the statue of a goat standing on a load of crates in Spitalfields.”
The Goat is a symbol for the waves of immigrants who found sanctuary in Spitalfields.
Spitalfields derived its name from the hospital and priory, St Mary’s Spittel, founded in 1197. Explore this charming museum here.
