Art week homework

3Blue have been learning all about John Wakefield this week. He is a local sculptor who designs and sculpts a variety of different pieces including woodland animals. This week 3Blue have designed and created our own woodland creatures to add to John Wakefield’s range, which look superb!

Coventry has some fantastic sculptures throughout the city that it can be proud of. Ranging from the Lady Godiva statue in the city centre, the peace statue at the cathedral and the Blue Ribbon Island in Foleshill.

3Blue’s challenge is to write a description about ONE of the three sculptures. REMEMBER to use conjunctions, adjectives and to start your sentences with a capital letter and end it with a full stop. We look forward to reading your descriptions 3Blue, Bee-lieve it, Achieve it!

  1. The sculpture that I am looking is lady Godiva because of the she rode around naked in her village and also her horse looks brave and also she is rich also she said to her husband I can ride around naked so she did.🙀😎😈😡👮🏽🐎

  2. Godiva was the wife of Leofric, earl of Mercia. They had one proved son Aelfgar, earl of Mercia. Godiva’s name occurs in charters and the Domesday survey, though the spelling varies. The old English name Godgifu or Godgyfu meant “gift of God”;Godiva was the latinised version. since the name was a popular one there are contemporaries of the same name. The reason of why Godiva rode a horse naked is because she wanted to lower the taxes that her husband kept on adding.

  3. Lady Godiva went around naked on her hors outside nobody looked at her only peeping Tom.when he saw her he got blind and cut of his arms and legs. Lady Godiva was very rich. So she said to her husband i can go around naked and she doesn’t have any more money and doesn’t need clothes.

  13. This is an extremely large light blue spiral-like construction that depicts three ribbons merging into one. It occupies the whole of a roundabout at the crossing of two major roads in the district of Foleshill. Its spiralling form was inspired by the constant circular movement around the site. It towers over the roundabout, making it visible in all directions. Its underlying theme is the ribbon industry that used to exist in Coventry. However, the visual message it conveys is confusing because of the dilemma of conveying the significance of ribbon-making and ribbons in abstract non-representational terms while using metal for suggesting the material quality of textile.
    The sculpture is intended to reflect Foleshill’s past. It aims to create a gateway to Foleshill which highlights the community’s cultural vitality and rich local history. Themes include silk ribbon weaving, textiles, archways and clocks. Groundwork Coventry has secured £20,000 from the government’s single regeneration budget and £16,000 from the RETEX scheme which rejuvenates areas with textile links. This project was managed by Groundwork Coventry. The Foleshill Environmental Action Group was involved throughout the project. During October 1997, Freeform Arts Trust ran workshops in local schools and with youth associations to develop ideas. The Coventry Blue Ribbon theme relates to the local weaving and textile production in the area. A number of designs was shown to local people on the open day and the spiral form was the preferred design. Reasons were that the spiral could be seen from a distance and people felt that the spiral symbolised hope. Coventry City Council spent £30,000 of European funding on the structure.
    Large scale ribbon making in Coventry was started by Major Bird who set up a works in 1705, most probably with the help of refugee French Hugenot craftsmen.
