In terms of favorite statues.

In terms of favorite statues.

This statue is one of my favorites not because it is so artistic or beautiful, instead it is my favorite because of the story behind it.

This particular statue is located near Olympic Park and represents a time where London’s air was so polluted you couldn’t breathe it in. A gentleman fell into a well and his friend tried to help rescue him. Despite both of their efforts, they passed away due to the horrid air.

This a constant reminder and push for London to keep its air clean. Especially during this time of the Olympics, bad air means they’ll lose money because it is their job to provide healthy conditions for the Olympic athletes.
