This young athlete is a bronze casting, mounted on a wooden plinth, with all four sides made deep enough and angled to take individual silver shields to mark a number of years of award winners at a school where such an award would be deemed appropriate.
Whenever I look at it I find myself wondering whether it is a diver or a gymnastic tumbler. Whichever it is, it is the final stride before they perform their athletic feat.
As I made it quite awhile ago it is time I gifted it to a suitable establishment. I am sure one day the opportunity will present itself… things usually happen for a reason!
I hope that one day I will meet the winner of a VICTOR LUDORUM, receiving this award on which they would have their name engraved, with the date, on a silver shield.
