MGM Assurance is sponsoring the first piece of modern art to be displayed at the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew for over 100 years in a bid to raise its profile with the public.
The piece, called Autumn, will be placed in Kew's Ave-nue of Maples and MGM says it hopes the plaque will raise public awareness of the life office during the garden's busy summer period.
The Worthing-based life office sponsored the bronzing of the statue which will be marked on the plaque.
MGM says it is privileged to have the opportunity to sponsor the sculpture as the Royal Botanical Gardens is well known for declining donations of art.
The artwork, by West country sculptor Kate Dixon, depicts a child looking at a fallen leaf.
It is one of four sculptures commissioned to represent the four seasons.
Head of marketing Richard Wood says: “We feel privileged to have been able to play a part in such an important event for the art world and Kew Gardens.”
