The Archer

Eric Aumonier


Eric Aumonier’s ‘The Archer’ links East Finchley station to its historic surroundings as an ancient hunting area, with the archer’s bow pointing towards the growing metropolis of London. The sculpture formed part of a wider initiative to link stations to their local area – stopped short by the Second World War, leaving ‘The Archer’ as the only completed work. The sculpture is made of beech over a steel support, covered with lead.

Aumonier’s other work for London Transport is the sculpture ‘South Wind’, on 55 Broadway, London Underground’s historic headquarters.
