And there has been a magnificent marble head - Héros de Lumière - by Igor Mitoraj, though it is susceptible to frost damge, so it is taken indoors for the winter and is sometimes on loan elsewhere.






A more recent addition is Ten Seated Figures by Magdalena Abakanowicz (2010), a former Professor of Fine Arts in Poland, who has become one of the world's foremost sculptors.
