Public Art Commission – Statues of HRH Queen Elizabeth II

Local sculptor and portrait artist Amy Goodman has been commissioned by the council to create two life-size sculptures of Queen Elizabeth II which will be sited in Andover and Romsey.

Originally commissioned as part of the Platinum Jubilee commemorations, the artworks have taken on a new poignancy following Her Majesty the Queen’s passing in 2022.

The designs will be bronze ‘sister’ sculptures. One statue, depicting a young Queen at her coronation, will be located in Romsey. The second, destined for Andover, shows her later in her reign, which was longer than any other monarch in British history.

The works are currently in progress. The Andover Queen will be located at Riverside Park and is expected to be unveiled during 2024. The location of the Romsey Queen is still to be confirmed.
