Fire in the Belly, Passion in the Heart

As the Olympic Ceremony came to the close I was delighted to see the incredible iconic Ms Lapper Statue with the amazing background of the stadium seemingly on Fire.


The statue is of naked woman with no arms who is also pregnant. it was created by the artist Marc Quinn, when Ms Lapper sat for the artist when she was eight months pregnant.


The Opening Ceremony was incredible show of strength and triumph of adversity - with the most spectacular backdrop.
