Queen’s Barge

The Royal Barge - Diamond Jubliee

Tom Nicholls was part of a small team of sculptors commissioned to create the gilded sculpture for the prow of the royal barge for the Diamond Jubilee celebrations. The project was a once in a lifetime opportunity to create an enormous, spectacular and ornate sculpture for an event of global significance. The image here shows Tom refining the moustaches of ‘Old Father Thames’.
