White horse sculpture celebrates new beginnings at housing development
A white horse sculpture has been unveiled at a development of new houses at Shrivenham, near Swindon.
The 5ft high horse – inspired by the nearby Bronze Age white horse at Uffington – was commissioned by developer Bloor Homes and created by Diccon Dadey of Hungerford-based Dadey Fine Metal Art.
The sculpture was named Nova following a public competition that attracted 170 entries. The winner, Jess Mason, explained the name meant ‘new beginnings’ in Latin.
The sculpture will continue to stand at the entrance of the new development to greet customers throughout the lifetime of the development of the 151 two, three and four bedroom homes.
