One of the nicest features of London Fields. Lighthearted public art, of the type that will appeal to kids as well as not too posey adults. They sit in a concreted area, which has a fluid curved design. Around this are small trees and bushes, and several benches with mosaics. Looking like Pearly People (as in King and Queen), covered with mosaic and pebbles, they are seated with several large flower pots, sadly not filled with living flowers. Round them they also have sheep (with mosaics and pebbles of course).
Took me an age to find any thing on them but apparently they were created by Freeform Arts in 1988-9. They commemorate the fact that the park used to be on the route used to bring livestock and produce from Hackney, Essex and Epping into city markets.
When I did London Marathon a few years ago Hackney Gazette took pictures of me sitting on them
