A life-size glowing deer made of 2,000 recycled plastic bottles has gone on display in the garden outside St James’s Church, just down the road from Piccadilly Circus. Created by artist Faith Bebbington, the sculpture will be shining bright until January 6.
The ‘Hart of London’ installation is a reminder to the public to encourage people to cut down on plastic waste over the festive period. Every £3 ‘tap donation’ will see the plastic deer light up and its red heart will magically come to life. All the money goes towards night shelters for the homeless and support for asylum-seekers such as free counselling services. Sometimes life in plastic can be fantastic.
