Four giant bronze sculptures by Damien Hirst have found their home in the stunning landscape of Yorkshire Sculpture Park’s Country Park.

The four sculptures are the artist’s well-known 10-metre tall cross-section of a pregnant woman, The Virgin Mother (2005-06), The Hat Makes the Man (2004-07), Charity (2002-03) and the majestic red and white horse, Myth (2010).

One of the earlier works, Charity is particularly poignant. A young girl in a blue dress clutching a teddy bear and donation box represents the outdated notions of collecting charity and representing disability in art. Meanwhile The Virgin Mother adds a haunting power to the gorgeous backdrop of the park’s lake.
