As a vervent follower of the Cambridge and Oxford University Boat Race each year (am an Oxford fan), I was intrigued to see on the map of Kensington Gardens a reference to a statue of Isis. Of course I had to see what it was all about and I found it adjacent to the Diana Memorial Fountain, overlooking the lake in the heart of the Gardens.
It was commissioned by the Halcyon Gallery to act as a fundraising figurehead for the Isis Educational Centre. It is a bronze sculpture, created by artist Simon Gudgeon.
Isis is definitely worth a visit – this goddess of nature is rather beautiful.Kensington Gardens is one of eight Royal Parks located within London.
