Meat Porters by Ralph Brown

Meat Porters

Artist: Ralph Brown

Bronze
1959
Height 210 cm
Market Square, Town Centre

Meat Porters was commissioned by the Trust. There was some debate as to whether a concrete or bronze version should be commissioned. The Trustees decided that bronze would be more durable and a full-scale sculpture, cast at Corinthian Bronze Foundry, was purchased with the help of the Elmgrant Trust. The Trustees persuaded Brown to change the sculpture's original title, Figures with a carcass, to Meat Porters. It was sited in Market Square in 1961 and granted Grade II listing by English Heritage.
