Dignity and Compassion
Two sculpture commissions: Welcome sculpture and Ward Garden sculpture reflecting the hospital’s values of dignity and compassion.
The Limes Ward is an in-patient unit, named after a mature lime tree located in the main garden of the unit .
‘I wanted the sculptures to draw on and enhance the core impressions delivered by the lime tree. It was symbolic on several levels; the lime tree provides a living, natural welcome to the grounds. It is rooted firmly in the ground, providing a sense of pride and dignity. Its treelike structure offers shade and privacy whilst a closer look at its leaves and stems reveal its delicate nature. This echoes the compassion experienced within the hospital.’ Ben Barrell
“They will stand like the wards’ Guardian Angels” Andy Tysoe, Ward Manager.
