The full wording around the cast stone base is An Embrace of Chinese Whispers, Pass it on. A four sided figure, which started as a hug, then became an embrace and then looked like a group whispering. So the title was very much like the sculpture, in that it grew as Lily worked on it.

As a fountain, Chinese Whispers is great surrounded by gravel or stone, although there is one in a London garden which is on a brick plinth in the middle of a deep circular pond. The pond was built just for the figure, and it looks great.

Chinese Whispers appeals to those who enjoy something a bit different in their gardens. Also to those who like to see bird life busy around water ; birds love the busy water as it bubbles around the concave top, and down through the hair. Without water, Chinese Whispers is striking simply as a group of figures.

HOW IS CHINESE WHISPERS CAST?

The group hug is bolted to a cast stone base, with a copper pipe cast into the centre which connects to a pump in a water reservoir underneath. It is cast in bronze resin, and the hair is usually finished with a verdigris patina.
