More about this artwork:

"When I was making the marble sculptures in The Complete Marble series, they seemed to me like public sculptures from the future. But now that Alison Lapper is in Trafalgar Square, the present has caught up to the future. Marble is the material used to commemorate heroes, and these people seem to me to be a new kind of hero – people who instead of conquering the outside world have conquered their own inner world and gone on to live fulfilled lives. To me, they celebrate the diversity of humanity. Most monuments are commemorating past events; because Alison is pregnant it’s a sculpture about the future possibilities of humanity." - Marc Quinn, Recent Sculptures Catalogue, Groninger Museum, 2006
