The flying dream has flown from it’s Carden Park home

For guests who have visited in recent months, they will most certainly have been drawn to the works of Tessa Campbell-Fraser adorning the pristine lawns in front of the Carden Park Hotel. Some may be disappointed to hear the polar bear statue has moved on from the Cheshire Sculpture Garden to pastures new. It was recently sold for an undisclosed figure and arrived at its home at Bolesworth Castle. 

About the artist; Tessa Campbell-Fraser

Edinburgh born Tessa Campbell-Fraser is a well renowned artist who is most known for her work in equestrian and landscape pieces. Her notable work includes being commissioned to paint Her Majesty’s most adored furry friends. Although her creations can be dated back to the 80’s. Her focus on bronze sculptures really materialised in the mid 90’s with an interest in representing an incredible likeness to her animal subjects. The Flying Dream is one of Tessa Campbell-Fraser’s major works.

About the sculpture; The flying dream

The Flying Dream sculpture depicts a life-size polar bear leaping mid-air with a euphoric female figure, head raised to the sky on its back. The impressive piece of art stands at 3-metres tall. The sculpture is intended to nod at man’s relationship to the natural world. This incredibly powerful message, inspired after Campbell-Fraser’s first child, is a talking point for the prevalent topic of global warming. Indicating how we must all aim to co-exist harmoniously together to create an optimistic future, being displayed in the most beautiful way.
