Godiva Awakes

Home / Projects archive / Godiva Awakes


Imagine a ten metre high Lady Godiva, awakening from her sleeping chamber for the first time.

She stands in the centre of England between the White Horse in Kent and the Angel of the North, a potent symbol of justice across the world, reborn for the 21st century, embodying the values of fair play, friendship, respect and courage that are at the heart of the Olympic movement.

Clothed in a cloak crafted by artists and communities from across the region, chronicling the West Midland’s unique industrial and engineering heritage she is a moving, breathing monument, reflecting the excellence of past engineering glories and ‘imagineering’ the engineering future for all our young people in the West Midlands.
