“Leaping Man” installed in Milton Keynes

Greg Rutherford is inspiration for ” Leaping Man” installed at it’s new home in Milton Keynes – 01/06/2014

“Leaping Man” is a dynamic sculpture created by Clare Bigger which represents the vision of the city of Milton Keynes and captures its “can do” philosophy.    Inspired by the recent Olympic success of long jumper Greg Rutherford, Clare has used the energetic nature of sport to convey this idea.  Made of stainless steel, this sculpture is an exciting and lively piece which reflects the nature of the local people and provides a welcoming and inspirational sight to those visiting Milton Keynes.  The 27ft (8.5m) “Leaping Man” has been erected on the A421 Fen Street Roundabout near junction 13 of the M1.
