Roman Baths

Julius Caesar 1990

This Julius Caesar  was one of eight  life size figures created by George Lawson depicting Roman generals and emperors connected with Britain. Each carved from two pieces of Bath stone, they were finished in 1897,and positioned around the Roman Baths Terrace.  This was designed  by John Brydon  architect   in 1892,  at the same time as the Concert Hall  and the Guildhall art gallery. Julius  happily stood in place until one night in 1988. Two drunks  toppled him into the Great Bath (see picture left.) With the help of my apprentice Iain Cotton I pieced the figure to together and modelled the parts that were smashed beyond repair and we  carved a new stone Caesar. All figures are well secured now.
