This sculpture - Lady-Hare, by Sophie Ryder - is one of a pair from a series called 'Torsos', which fuse human, animal and mythological forms to create mythical hybrids. Sophie Ryder's work has been the subject of an 'Art in Yorkshire' exhibition at Bradford's Art Gallery, Cartwright Hall, which is in Lister Park. The companion piece is 'Minotaur'. Huge and imposing, these two artworks sit either side of the entrance to Cartwright Hall, like sentinels. The exhibition inside has now closed but these pieces remain in position until next year.
