The Kite Flyer by Marzia Colonna

Winchester has some wonderful pieces of public art

and The Kite Flyer by Marzia Colonna is one of them.

It's a bronze figure of a young man joyfully flying a gilded kite whilst walking across a bridge which spans Parchment Street at a height of six metres. The bridge was constructed by Denmead's Metal Art Design foundry in the Winchester district.

The commission came in response to Parchment Street businesses' quest to attract more trade to explore and appreciate the street's range of independent shops.
