Eric Aumonier, sculptor, putting the final touches to "The Archer" East Finchley Underground station - photograph

The sculptor Eric Aumonier stands on a ladder beside his work, Archer, at East Finchley station. He is working on site, adding the finishing touches to the bow. The figure of the archer links to East Finchley's surroundings. The station is on the edge of the site of the Royal Forest of Enfield, where the court and commoners used to hunt. The sculpture is made of beech over a steel support, covered with lead. Aumonier's other work for London Transport includes a sculpture in relief, the South Wind, on 55 Broadway, London Transport's headquarters.
