David Kemp's 'The Navigators'
David Kemp's 'The Navigators'
A fantastical sculpture in Hay's Galleria, once Hay's Dock, in the Pool of London, now restored. The dock , in the mid 19th century, received ships bringing food to the city. In particular, the tea clippers docked here.

"The Navigators are high but not dry in a pond in a galleria that was once a wharf in the pool of London. This large sculpture represents the ships, the monsters and the men that drove them, and is animated by a bizarre collection of moving parts, pumps and water features.

It is made from bronze, welded steel, found objects, motors, pumps, kinetic and water features
