As part of Totally Thames, The Rising Tide is a ‘first for London’ internationally acclaimed underwater sculptor, Jason deCaires Taylor is bringing his sculpture ‘The Rising Tide’ to the foreshore neighbouring MI6. Concealed and revealed by the tide, four proud working horses and their riders pay homage to the industrial evolution of the Thames and the nomadic people who have travelled and traded on its shores for millennia.
Concealed and revealed by the tide, The Rising Tide is best viewed from the riverside walkway for up to two hours either side of low tide (see nineelmslondon.com/totallythames for tide times).
