David Wynne, Boy with a Dolphin and Ozric Tentacles

The sculptor David Wynne died earlier this month.

I remember seeing a marquette of his Boy with a Dolphin on the Antiques Roadshow one Sunday. The next day, after calling in at the Liberal Democrat News office at Cowley Street, I walked along the bank of the Thames to Chelsea, where I came across the real thing.

The model for the boy was Wynne's son Roly, who grew up to be the bass player with Ozric Tentacles. He died in 1999.
