  • Short Summary

    We see a sculptor at work and the result of his labours.

  • Description

    "Meet Mr W Reid Dick, the famous Sculptor of the Kitchener Memorial, (St. Paul's) and the Lion on the Menin Gate, etc." C/U of Mr Dick as he works on an elegant sculpture. "The advantage of the Sculptor is that he writes in almost indelible material - stone. But, at first his conception is "written" in plaster." L/S of the sculptor at work. We see his model in the foreground. She stands in a dynamic pose with fabric swathed around her body.

    M/S of the girl, it looks like a rather uncomfortable pose. Various shots of the model. The sculptor puts some finishing touches to his piece. He smiles and laughs as he works. "This preliminary plaster work took six months - " The model is turned - it is of two goddess-like women holding the reins of a horse. "Later his labour is translated into Portland stone - and here is the result...(on Unilever House)." Low angle shot of the statue in place. Closer shot of the statue.
