NHS Angel Sculpture Unveiled At Sandwell Park In England


Sandwell Council

A sculpture of a winged medical worker has been unveiled at a Sandwell park in tribute to the NHS and social care ‘angels’ on the the coronavirus frontline.

Black Country sculptor Luke Perry has created the four-metre tall angelic figure from steel and other metals at his factory in Cradley Heath. He has worked with Sandwell Council to have it installed in Bearwood’s Lightwoods Park, where it was unveiled next to Hagley Road West on Wednesday.

The temporary installation bears the inscription ‘Thank you NHS and Care Workers’.

Luke’s friendship with Oscar Nolan, a paediatric heart consultant at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, and their recent conversations about those working for the NHS during the Covid-19 pandemic were the inspiration for his sculpture.

Luke, who lives in Stourbridge, said: “Like everyone, I have family members who owe their lives to the NHS and I wanted to create a piece of public art that captures the huge public outpouring of thanks to our health and care workers at this time.

“It is also a monument to all those who have lost their lives on the frontline fighting the virus and a reminder of how important the NHS is. This is a marker to all our key workers and everyone fighting this ‘war’ and acknowledges their commitment and sacrifices.

“I have used steel and other metals available in our factory to create the sculpture and I wanted the figure to have wings to symbolise the angelic quality of our health and care workers.

“I would like to thank Sandwell Council for helping to find an ideal location for the sculpture. Lightwoods Park is perfect as many health and care workers travel along the Hagley Road to and from hospitals in Birmingham and on their way to their caring roles, so I hope they will see it and know that their inspirational work is so highly valued by us all.”
