This life size bespoke bronze statue of Winston Churchill sitting on an outdoor bench is a truly remarkable piece of sculpture.

Britain’s great hero is depicted sitting comfortably with a cigar held between the two first fingers of his left hand making his famous ‘V’ for Victory sign. With the hat he wore when painting his pictures outside casually resting on his knee, this bronze statue of Winston Churchill is the very epitome of Britishness. There is even enough room to sit beside him on the bench and sneak a casual selfie.

This arresting piece is sure to capture attention wherever it is placed, be that in your garden or some public space. The attention to detail and workmanship is breathtaking and it has a unique quality all of its own. Weighing in around a third of a ton this is a major work of art.

Winston Churchill is usually voted Britain’s ‘Greatest Briton’ coming the top of most polls on the subject such as the one taken by the BBC in 2002. He was born in 1874 to an aristocratic family and having served time in the Royal Cavalry, he was elected as a Conservative MP in 1900. He defected to the Liberal Party and became First Lord of the Admiralty in the Liberal Government and received heavy criticism for the disaster at Gallipoli which he created. He resigned and went back to fighting himself.

In the interwar years he ‘crossed the floor’ and returned to the Conservative Party becoming Chancellor of the Exchequer in 1924. He lost his seat in 1929 and spent the next 11 years out of office writing and making speeches. He was alone in his opposition to Indian Independence but was proven correct in his strong warnings against the Appeasement of Nazi Germany when the second world war broke out in 1939.

When the Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain resigned in 1940, Churchill was voted in to succeed him as Prime Minister of an all-party coalition government.His firm leadership and rousing speeches did much to stimulate British morale during periods of great hardship. Whilst he lost office again in 1945 with the election of a Labour government who instituted a Welfare State, he was re-elected in 1951 but his age and health was against him and he often had to conduct government business from his bed. He resigned in 1955 and died ten years later. A complex and sometimes difficult man, he had bouts of depression which he called his ‘black dog’, he was a larger than life character who still attracts great devotion. This bronze statue of Winston Churchill will create a great statement wherever you choose to place it.

Winston Churchill was born on 30 November 1874, in Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire and was of rich, aristocratic ancestry. Although achieving poor grades at school, his early fascination with militarism saw him join the Royal Cavalry in 1895. As a soldier and part-time journalist, Churchill travelled widely, including trips to Cuba, Afghanistan, Egypt and South Africa.
 
Churchill was elected as Conservative MP for Oldham in 1900, before defecting to the Liberal Party in 1904 and spending the next decade climbing the ranks of the Liberal government. He was First Lord of the Admiralty (the civil/political head of the Royal Navy) by the time of the disastrous Gallipoli campaign, which he created. Heavily criticised for this error, he resigned from this position and travelled to the Western Front to fight himself.
 
The interwar years saw Churchill again ‘cross the floor’ from the Liberals, back to the Conservative Party. He served as Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1924, when he controversially opted for Britain to re-join the Gold Standard. Following the Tory electoral defeat in 1929, Churchill lost his seat and spent much of the next 11 years out of office, mainly writing and making speeches. Although he was alone in his firm opposition to Indian Independence, his warnings against the Appeasement of Nazi Germany were proven correct when the Second World War broke out in 1939.
 
Following Neville Chamberlain’s resignation in 1940, Churchill was chosen to succeed him as Prime Minister of an all-party coalition government.
 
Churchill, who also adopted the self-created position of Minister for Defence, was active both in administrative and diplomatic functions in prosecuting the British war effort. Some of his most memorable speeches were given in this period, and are credited with stimulating British morale during periods of great hardship. However, Labour leader Clement Attlee’s unexpected General Election victory in 1945 saw Churchill out of office and once again concentrating on public speaking. In his 1946 speech in the USA, the instinctive pro-American famously declared that “an iron curtain has descended across the Continent”, and warned of the continued danger from a powerful Soviet Russia.
 
By his re-election in 1951, Churchill was, in the words of Roy Jenkins, “gloriously unfit for office”. Ageing and increasingly unwell, he often conducted business from his bedside, and while his powerful personality and oratory ability endured, the Prime Minister’s leadership was less decisive than during the war. His second term was most notable for the Conservative Party’s acceptance of Labour’s newly created Welfare State, and Churchill’s effect on domestic policy was limited. His later attempts at decreasing the developing Cold War through personal diplomacy failed to produce significant results, and poor health forced him to resign in 1955, making way for his Foreign Secretary and Deputy Prime Minister, Anthony Eden.
 
Churchill died in 1965, and was honoured with a state funeral.
