The NAVIGATORS was built by David Kemp in 1986. He was inspired by London Bride City & invented this sculpture in collaboration with the Galleria architect, BOB CLEMENTS, who designed the pool to reflect the Victorian buildings & their Thames-side location.
I was interested in this sculpture because it reminded me of slavery and the Rastafarian martyr. While looking at this,I thought of many questions and reasons why it had been there and what was the history behind it,which had me researching online after. By looking at the small detailing ,it had inspired me to design outfits which had a meaning to the lives lost in slavery and the Rastafarian martyr. A martyr is when people are killed for standing up for their beliefs.
