After a morning at the London Film Museum (which had some interesting costumes and props on display), I decided to wander the streets of London to reacquaint myself with the city's many sights.
Vroom Vroom sculpture by Lorenzo Quinn
Not only did I discover the colourful new Jelly Baby Family at Marble Arch, but also this whimsical Vroom Vroom sculpture by Lorenzo Quinn along Park Lane.
Situated across the road from the entrance to The Dorchester Hotel, it looks like something out of a Monty Python animated sketch.
It's so captivating, you can't help but take a glut of photos from every angle.
The intriguing work of art looks like a giant child has reached down to play with his favourite toy car and is pushing it along the road, in fact the oversized aluminium hand is actually modeled after the artist's son.
The fantastic public art installation has only recently been installed in Central London, as it's already been on display in Valencia, Spain and Abu Dhabi (so it's lucky I'm in London to see it), and will be visible until April 2011.
The fun sculpture features a black vintage Fiat 500 and was apparently the first car the 44-year old Italian sculptor bought and so symbolises the artist's independence, freedom and personal growth.
I think the four-metre high piece is going to be a talking point and a draw for photographers, both local and tourists, for the months to come.
I also love the fact the sculpture comes with a bit of tarmac road complete with painted traffic lines.
Hmm, I wonder what else around London will amuse me in the coming days before I fly back to L.A...
