The Lamb

The Lamb

Hidden Gem

This permanent art installation by Kenny Hunter was installed in St George's Lane, Canterbury. The bronze work addresses a diverse range of historical, religious and contemporary social currents through its singular sculptural form - a lamb standing on a tree stump.

Kenny Hunter's inspiration for the work includes William Blake's 'Jerusalem', the hymn being synonymous with English identity and yearning for social justice.

I always see this when I'm catching the bus to uni and I have always wondered what it means.

A lovely little diversion that most people would miss, It's hidden behind the shops, by the bus station.

I love the architecture of the old weavers house, it looks like its going to fall into the river, but its still standing after so many years!

I don't remember this being installed, one day the plaza was empty and the next, there was a little lamb on a tree trunk! A wonderful addition.

I occasionally take shifts at the kiosk just opposite the lamb statue. It's funny seeing how many kids have started taking selfies with the lamb

This is the last thing you see as you leave Canterbury by bus, it makes a lovely end to the day.
