Location of Polar Bear sculpture

The Glebe

By Pauline Maryan

This Portland stone sculpture is perhaps one of the best known and loved in the town.  It was placed at the Glebe in 1964. 

 Mark Harvey's sculptures in wood do not appear to have survived, for example The Fish (1961) at Elm Green, and The Donkey (1969) at Bandley Hill Park, otherwise known as the Donkey Park, although this has been replaced by a more recent version.

Mark Harvey lectured at Goldsmith's College, and lived at Aston End.

Comments about this page

I was so shocked to see this page! I went to school with Marks daughter, Emily, and visited his house on several occasions. I had no idea he was famous! Can't wait to find out more, and maybe even say hi to Emily??
