Vivi Mallock’s popular sculpture has returned to the foundry for repairs before being reinstated in the newly refurbished Gunwharf Quays development in Portsmouth.

The sculpture was unveiled by Her Majesty the Queen on 27th June 2002 and shows the prow of the Royal Yacht Britannia, with the future represented by a small boy seated at its base. The base itself evokes the round Tower, which guards the entrance to the Harbour.
