Matthew Flinders statue installation at Australia House

The work is transported from Castle Fine Arts Foundry in Wales to Australia House for the unveiling ceremony.

Arriving at Australia House, London

The plinth goes in on makeshift ramps.

The base is lifted from the truck....

....and fixed to a dolly.

Lastly the statue is brought in...the only way to get him through the door is to manhandle and slide him down the ramp

A gantry is erected to lift the pieces into place

Chris, Tom and Terry from Castle Foundry.

The lighting and backdrop go in and preparations for the unveiling ceremony begin.
