Sculptor Creates Statue Of Black Lives Matter Protestor Patrick Hutchinson

Sculptor Creates Statue Of Black Lives Matter Protestor Patrick Hutchinson

A sculptor has created a statue of Black Lives Matter protester Patrick Hutchinson.

Heroic Hutchinson, 50, hit headlines around the world last June, when he was photographed carrying counter-protestor Bryn Male to safety after he was injured during a Black Lives Matter march in Central London.

The statue depicts the moment the grandfather and personal trainer scooped up the suspected far-right protester, put him over his shoulder, and carried him to safety.

Speaking after the incident, Hutchinson downplayed praise - in a piece he wrote for GQ Magazine, he said: "I remember thinking, 'The only thing I can do here, because we're all going to get trampled at some point, is just scoop them up and carry them out to safety', which is what I did.

"I walked him over to the police and said, 'Here you go'.

"I did it because, regardless of anyone's opinions or views - we can worry about that later - but at that particular moment in time, you know, it's only going to end one way and we didn't want to stand by and let that happen."

Sharing images of the statue on Instagram, Hutchinson wrote: "Absolutely blown away by the incredible news... that life changing moment where we just did what we felt was right will be preserved for generations to come in this breath-taking bronze."

Sculptor Hector Guest, who created the piece, said: "I was immediately struck by this truly inspirational act, an example of how humanity should be and believe this image will be a defining moment in our history."

Adding: "I believe this image should stand as a monument for the nation we aspire to be and remind us of the journey we have yet to complete."

He said: "When George Floyd was killed it was a real poignant moment, when it was like, enough is enough.

"You know, something's got to be done now, because how many more of us are going to be killed? And we will sit by and act as if it's just another everyday thing."

He added: "One of the reasons we were [at the Black Lives Matter rallies] was to protect and oversee and to stop the young people doing things they may regret.

"Because once they've done that thing and they go in front of the justice system, they're not going to be fairly treated. We know that."
