Find the Leaping Hare of Broadgate Circle

In a shameless attempt to mark the 29th February, the leap year anomaly which only occurs every four years, today's find is a City of London statue, the Leaping Hare On Crescent And Ball by controversial modernist sculptor Barry Flanagan.


Located on Broadgate Circle, the statue is one of many of leaping hares by Welsh-born Flanagan, who died in 2009 at the age of 68. It was installed at Broadgate in 1988,
