Chelsea Physic Garden, London

Lord Cadogan promised the Chelsea Physic Garden to replace the sad and sorry resin cast statue of Sir Hans Sloane at the centre of the garden with a new statue. Inspired by the Michael Rysbrak original the new statue was carved from Portland stone. The finished statue was unveiled on 28th April 2014 by Lord Cadogan, a descendent of Sir Hans Sloane. It stands on the same marble plinth that Michael Rysbrack’s original stood, before it was moved to the British Museum.
